In West Haven, an armed man walking along the city’s beach boardwalk was arrested Sunday after refusing to comply with police who requested a permit for the pistol fastened to his hip.

Officers say several people approached them about two men carrying pistols.  One complied with their request.

However, police say 35-year-old Scott Lazurek of Derby refused the request.

He’s being charged with interfering with police.

Lazurek’s firearm was seized and his permit is headed to the State Police Licensing Unit for revocation.

He’s due to appear in Milford Superior Court June 18.
