BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A juvenile detention officer is accused of worker’s compensation fraud.
35-year-old Gregory Brunson of East Haven was arrested Friday. Brunson works at the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center. In August of 2019, Brunson claimed he was hurt while trying to restrain a prisoner.
He was placed on temporary disability, but prosecutors say he kept coaching a youth football team while collecting worker’s compensation.
