Robert W. Marsh, 48, New London, is charged with felony bail jumping and criminal damage to property.
At 3 a.m. Thursday, May 14, New London Police Sgt. Earl Ruckdashel was on patrol in the alley behind North Water Street when a man flagged him down. The man said he heard a loud bang and saw an upset man walk out of the area.
Ruckdashel then found that the glass had been broken out of the door to the Copper Shot bar.
From witness descriptions, Ruckdashel believed the suspect to be Marsh. He and Officer Mike Harlow went to Marsh’s residence.
According to the criminal complaint, Marsh became upset when Ruckdashel asked him about the incident. Marsh reportedly started yelling that the police were not doing their job and not getting heroin off the street.
Marsh also complained that someone beat him up, but when police tried to identify who beat up Marsh, he kept changing the subject, the complaint says. Marsh was taken into custody on suspected bail jumping.
