Hartford Police Officer Arrested for Second Time in a Month

A Hartford police officer has been arrested for the second time in less than a month in East Windsor.

Forty-five-year-old James Guzie turned himself in to police last week on a charge of violating a protective order. No other details were given. He is due in court in September.

Earlier this month Guzie was charged with disorderly conduct in East Windsor, and has been suspended with pay, according to police.

The report on the first incident says East Windsor police arrested Guzie 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 Guzman 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.

NBC Investigates tried contacting Guzie via his phone for comment, but we have been unable to reach him.
