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.
