    A federal grand jury in Bridgeport indicted four East Haven Police officers on charges of conspiring to violate, and violating, the civil rights of members of the East Haven community. It is alleged that unreasonable force was used when victims were unarmed, neither resisting nor interfering with the police, but rather securely under the control of the police or otherwise cooperative. In some cases, the victims were handcuffed with their hands behind their backs when officers assaulted them.

    Sgt. John Miller and Officers David Cari, Dennis Spaulding, and Jason Zullo were arrested this morning without incident. According to allegations contained in the indictment, from approximately 2007 through 2011, Miller, Cari, Spaulding, and Zullo, while acting under color of law, conspired to injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate various members of the East Haven community in violation of their constitutional rights.

    The case is being investigated by the Civil Rights Squad of the FBI’s New York Field Office. New York FBI Special Operation teams, including its SWAT Team, assisted in today’s arrests.

    “The four police officers charged today allegedly formed a cancerous cadre that routinely deprived East Haven residents of their civil rights,” said New York FBI Assistant Director in Charge Janice K. Fedarcyk. “The public should not need protection from those sworn to protect and serve. In simple terms, these defendants behaved like bullies with badges.”
