CT Councilor Arrested After Following Responding Police

Associated Press

December 08, 2010

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – (AP) — A West Hartford town councilor has been arrested after he allegedly followed police responding to reports of a domestic disturbance and offered legal help to residents of the home.

Police say they arrested Rob Durbin and charged him with interfering with an officer and first-degree criminal trespass just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police say a man, later identified as the 35-year-old Durbin, tried to open a door to the home even after being asked to stop. He told police he knew the residents and was there to offer legal aid. The residents said they did not know Durbin and did not summon him.

The Democrat has a law degree and is a member of the town public safety committee.

He says he went to the home as a lawyer, but refused further comment.

    He was looking for a client, now he has one - himself! What do you bet he represents himself? What's the old courtroom saying about representing your self; here is the poster boy for being a fool! Makes you wonder under what rock he found his bar card

    So if he is a Democrat with a law degree???? I fail to understand how this exempts him, except in his own mind. It's tough to be so special that the laws don't apply to you. Surprise......you just got busted.

    For someone who is supposed to be on the public safety committee, he has volunteered to be the poster boy for interfering with public safety. Not a real good idea, I-D-I-O-T!!!!! I'm not sure if his law degree is really valid or if it came from the backyard school of law. In any event, safe to say that I won't be seeking legal council anytime soon from this moron, even if we did live in the same area.
