On 06/05/2017 at approximately 12:30pm while an Officer with the Plainfield Police Department was directing traffic in a construction zone with Frontier Communication on North Main St in Moosup, 60 year old Joseph M. Lombardy of Moosup who was driving his vehicle northbound on North Main St failed to obey the direction of the officer who was attempting to stop northbound traffic at the time. Lombardy refused to stop and continued through the work zone. Lombardy was subsequently stopped by police a short distance north of the construction zone. During the motor vehicle stop Lombardy was unable to provide proper insurance documentation for his vehicle, as required by CT State Motor Vehicle Laws, when asked by police and he became extremely argumentative and uncooperative. Upon Lombardy exiting his vehicle so that it could be towed for failing to have valid proof of insurance, Lombardy continued to be uncooperative and aggressive towards police and refused to obey their commands as he was being escorted to the sidewalk area out of the roadway. Lombardy resisted arrested and after a brief struggle he was taken into custody for Interfering and Resisting with police, Disobeying the Signal of an Officer and Failure to have Proof of Insurance. Additionally Lombardy’s passenger, 45 year old Tatina M. Marsh of Moosup, was found to be in possession of crack cocaine and paraphernalia. Marsh was also taken into custody for Possession of Crack Cocaine and paraphernalia. Both Lombardy and Marsh were later released on bonds and are scheduled to face their criminal charges on 06/19/2017 in the Danielson Superior Courthouse.
