Former East Haven Officer In Profiling Case Arrested For Trespassing, Illegal Hunting

EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A former East Haven police officer charged in a federal racial profiling investigation has been arrested again for alleged illegal hunting and trespassing.

David Cari was one of four East Haven officers arrested by federal agents last year for allegedly abusing and violating the rights of Latinos. Cari and another officer are awaiting trial, while two other officers have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.

An official with the Regional Water Authority told the New Haven Register ( ) that Cari illegally hunted deer and trespassed on the water authority’s property around the Lake Saltonstall Reservoir near the East Haven-Branford line. State police arrested him last week.

Cari’s lawyer couldn’t be reached for comment.

Cari retired from the force two months after being arrested in the federal investigation.
