NORWALK, Conn. A Norwalk police officer was given a misdemeanor summons Sunday in a domestic violence case, according to published reports.
Detective Shannon Sherry, 31, of Norwalk, was charged with disorderly conduct, according to John Nickerson in the Stamford Advocate . Nickerson reports that police were called to Sherry's home at 2 a.m. by his wife. The police report indicated that Sherry appeared to be drunk and had pulled his wife's hair, dragging her through the house.
Sherry's name does not appear in the arrest log released every morning. Chief Harry Rilling is quoted in Nickerson's article as saying that he doesn't know why Sherry's name is not in the public report. Steve Kobak reports in The Hour that Sherry's file at Norwalk Superior Court does not contain information about the incident. Court files are commonly "locked" by police, withholding sensitive information. Sherry is on administrative leave until the conclusion of an internal investigation, Kobak reports.
