NORWALK, Conn. — A Norwalk man was charged with carrying a Colt .45 semi-automatic handgun Tuesday while being arrested on charges stemming from a domestic violence incident.

On Nov. 17, police received a complaint from a 30-year-old woman who said Luis Vigo, 33, had hit her in the head several times during an argument. The woman had lumps on the side of her head, bruising near her eye and a lump on her lip, according to police reports. By the time officers arrived, Vigo had left, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

An officer spotted Vigo's car Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of the King Kennedy housing complex, where police said he had previously been arrested on trespassing charges. Vigo was sitting in the car, and the woman who had filed the complaint was sitting next to him, police said.

Police found the weapon under the front seat while searching his car. There were live rounds in the magazine, according to police reports. Vigo told the officers that he carried it with him for protection because he had been robbed and beat up in the past.

"I don't play offense, I play defense," Vigo told the officers, according to reports.

He was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, carrying a gun without a permit, criminal possession of a pistol or revolver and carrying weapons in a motor vehicle. He was held on $5,000 bond and appeared in court Wednesday.

Their obviously both losers, but theres no law against that. As far as the gun, he wasnt hurting anybody with it & given where he seems to hang around, a gun might be a smart thing, smarter than pretending its inconceivable a person might need one for sure. People often get what they deserve, if this woman chooses to hang with a guy that beats her they should either make HER press charges or just drop them. We waste alot of money playing social worker with our justice system.

Broad River:

Guns in the hands of people who don't need them and the woman who had filed the complaint was sitting next to him.

"I don't play offense, I play defense," Vigo told the officers, according to reports.

Except when dealing with his punching bag girlfriend..then it's all offense.
