Trooper on details of governor indicted in domestic dispute | Connecticut News
LEDYARD, Connecticut (AP) – Connecticut State Police have placed a soldier assigned to Governor Ned Lamont’s security service on administrative suspension pending the outcome of criminal and internal investigations into an alleged domestic dispute.
Ledyard Police on Wednesday charged Private Ryan Luther with Disorderly Driving. He was released on $ 500 bail and arraigned on Thursday in New London Superior Court.
An arrest warrant affidavit says police were called to a Ledyard home on Monday over a marital dispute, The Day of New London reported on Friday. The affidavit states that a victim told police that Luther verbally abused the victim and a minor, and prevented the victim from leaving the house by standing behind a car and placing his foot behind the tire back.
State police said Luther, of Ledyard, was on administrative suspension pending criminal and internal investigations. He has been in the force since 2001 and is a member of the governor’s security service, said Private Pedro Muniz, spokesman for the state police.
Messages seeking comment were sent to Luther and his lawyer, Robert Britt on Saturday.
