Middletown Police report the following incidents:
SECOND-DEGREE FAILURE TO APPEAR — Robert M. Camera, 29, of Johnson Street was picked up after a suspicious person's complaint, according to the report, and found with an outstanding warrant.
DISORDERLY CONDUCT — At 10:07 p.m., police were called to Wesleyan University's Fisk Hall on High Street by public safety officers about an assault involving Han Bao, 20, of High Street, who reportedly assaulted his girlfriend. The report says Bao told the PSafe officers he had argued with her and slapped her a few times, after they fought over her breaking up with him. The report indicates Bao slapped her because he thought she was seeing someone else. The woman said they met to break up and Bao was very angry because of something he found on her computer, according to the affidavit, and when she said she wouldn't allow him to check it, he slapped her three times in the face, punched her right shoulder and pushed her to the ground, then tried to take her phone away.
DUI, FAILURE TO DRIVE IN PROPER LANE, RESTRICTED TURN — At 2:05 a.m., Franklyn Almonte, 34, of High Street was driving a Dodge pickup erratically on Washington Street near Camp, according to the report, and so fast that an officer ahead of him feared he'd crash into his cruiser. Almonte's truck then swerved into the opposite travel lane and stopped abruptly, police say, facing north in both west-bound lanes. When the cruiser's lights and sirens were activated, the report says, Almonte continued on High Street at 5 miles per hour, stopped then took off again at the same low speed. He failed sobriety tests and refused to take a blood alcohol breath test, according to the report.
NON-STUDENT POSSESSING DRUG PARAPHERNALIA NEAR SCHOOL — At 11:47 a.m., a Middletown Police officer on a rooftop overlooking Main Street with binoculars saw Vincent D. Cappello, 41, of Grand Street approach a man in front of the St. Vincent DePaul Place. The report says Cappello has an arrest for narcotics possession and was caught two weeks prior with a used hypodermic needle and the other man has two arrests for narcotics possession. Police say a truck appeared on Pearl Street, turned onto Grand with both suspects moving around inside and with the unidentified man driving, sped off without stopping at a red light. The report says when talking to officers, the unidentified man said he stopped the truck so Cappello could put on cologne. Cappello, detectives report, had a used needle in his pocket, which he said was used to shoot cocaine, not heroin, as he is on Suboxone, and on the truck seat were a number of folded bills. The unidentified man received verbal warnings for no seat belt, illegal parking and traveling fast.
