Man facing several charges after altercation with co-worker

Any kind of criminal charge should be taken serious. From a DUI to assault, any crime can have serious consequences that can affect a person for a lifetime. People in the Bridgeport area make poor decisions from time to time, but that doesn’t mean everyone arrested for a crime is guilty or that he or she should always receive the maximum penalty if convicted.

Authorities are still trying to gather information as they investigate a recent incident between to co-workers at a Fairfield restaurant. According to reports, investigators tried to obtain video from the surveillance system cameras at the restaurant, but the camera was not working properly. Attempts to glean more information from the restaurant owner and manger also came up short.

Meantime, one man has been charged in the incident, which reportedly involved slurs about the other man’s sexual orientation. According to reports, a 48-year-old man from Stratford has been charged with a bias crime after he allegedly harassed his co-worker and called him derogatory names. The victim also claims that he suffered a cut to his chest when his co-worker threw a knife at him. The accused is facing charges of second-degree assault, breach of peace and second-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias.

If this man is convicted he could face serious penalties, including lengthy prison time. Now would be a good time for this man to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. Likewise, if you face any kind of criminal charges, then you too might want to retain a lawyer.
