HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut’s state treasurer may have handed Hartford police the wrong registration document before her car was towed by authorities last week.
But Jeffrey Beckham, a spokesman for the state Department of Administrative Services, tells The Hartford Courant it’s not clear why a computer check did not show that the vehicle was properly registered to the state.
Denise Nappier was stopped by police in the parking lot of a Hartford housing project last Thursday. Beckham said it appears she gave an officer the registration for a 2007 car she had previously been issued.
Police charged Nappier with misusing license plates and operating an unregistered vehicle. They towed her state car and she walked three miles home.
Hartford State’s Attorney Gail Hardy has said the charges will be dropped.
