A Hartford police officer was charged with disorderly conduct in East Windsor Wednesday and has been suspended with pay, according to police.
The arrest report says East Windsor police arrested 45-year-old James Guzie on Wednesday after his wife went to police and reported that he assaulted her.
She told police that he had taken her cell phone and refused to give it back.
She said Guzie had keys in his hand and pushed her when she tried to get the phone back, causing an abrasion to the left side of her stomach, according to the arrest report.
When the woman tried to get the phone again, Guzie pushed his elbow into her chest, according to police.
Guzie was charged with disorderly conduct.
Hartford police said Guzie has been on the force for seven years and he has been suspended with pay in accordance with internal administrative procedures.
He is due back in court on Aug. 22, according to online court records.
