32-year-old man who refused to identify himself, answer questions from officers, arrested for reportedly trespassing at Plainfield PD


PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A 32-year-old man has been arrested after reportedly trespassing at the Plainfield Police Department on Sunday.

Police said just before 10:30 a.m., they discovered a man pushing a bike in a restricted area on the property of the Plainfield Police Department.

When police made contact with the man, he refused to identify himself and what he was doing.

Police said the man began reaching for “an unknown item” in his jacket and was “both verbally and physically non-compliant with officers.”

The man was placed under arrest after physically attempting to resist officers. Once under arrest, the man continued to refuse to identify himself, speak or answer any questions.

Police later discovered the man had poured an unknown liquid onto all of the marked patrol cruisers. Connecticut State Police Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit later determined the liquid was not an accelerant.

He was later identified as 32-year-old Shane Hart.

Hart is charged with criminal trespass, interfering with an officer, criminal mischief and failure to submit to fingerprinting.

He is being held on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court Monday, March 8 at 8:30 a.m.
