A Naugatuck police officer who was arrested in January on charges stemming from a domestic dispute resigned from the Naugatuck Police Department Thursday... The borough Police Commission was set to discuss whether to terminate 10-year veteran Officer Thomas Grant but, instead, Grant submitted his resignation letter which comes about three months after he was charged with assault and other charges stemming from a domestic violence case with his girlfriend. Police Chief Christopher Edson said he accepted Grant's letter, which means the resignation is immediate... Grant, 38, was arrested after police investigated a report filed by his girlfriend claiming Grant hit her and grabbed her by the hair during an argument. The girlfriend also alleged Grant made comments to harm her further, Naugatuck police said. After a three-day internal affairs investigation, Naugatuck officers arrested Grant on charges of third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and threatening... Because Grant resigned he is entitled to a pension that he vested in during his 10 years with the Naugatuck PD, first as a dispatcher and then as an officer... Before January, Grant found himself being scrutinized after he was arrested following a domestic disturbance in 2007. He was also subjected to a 20-day suspension in 2009 after an internal investigation into inappropriate conduct at a bar. Following that 2009 investigation, Edson told Grant he would be fired if he violated department substance abuse policies again. Grant remains free on a $25,000 bond issued by Waterbury Superior Court. Following the arraignment in court in January, a judge issued a protective order barring him from contact with his girlfriend. Grant is due back in Waterbury Court on May 8. [Full article here]
