NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – A New Haven officer has been arrested in connection to an incident that occurred while she was off duty.

Police said Officer Lindsey Nesto was arrested on a warrant charging her with breach of peace for an incident that occurred in Wallingford on October 31.

According to the warrant for her arrest, police responded to a caller complaint about an off-duty officer who was intoxicated. Officer Nesto confronted three juveniles sitting on a curb outside the Wallingford home of her sister, the warrant stated.

The warrant said that a neighbor’s Ring doorbell camera recorded a woman, whose voice sounded like Officer Nesto’s, yelling a racial epithet at one of the juveniles. Additionally, the warrant noted that Officer Nesto’s sister “appeared to be yelling at some juveniles and told them to get off the lawn.”

One of the minors told police that Officer Nesto threatened to break the neck of one of the juveniles, according to the warrant.

Wallingford police said she also chased the juveniles down the street.

Officer Nesto has been placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation.  

She was charged with second-degree breach of peace and will appear in court in February of 2023.
