Officer charged in shooting faces judge for first time

Hamden officer Devin Eaton was arraigned during a brief hearing in New Haven Superior

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut police officer who opened fire on an unarmed couple's car and wounded a 22-year-old woman faced a judge Monday for the first time since being arrested on felony assault and reckless endangerment charges.

The driver, Paul Witherspoon III, was not injured, but his girlfriend, Stephanie Washington, suffered serious injuries including a fractured pelvis and spine. Police found no weapons in their car.

His lawyer, Gregory Cerritelli, said Monday that he believes the arrest will have a chilling effect on police officers who are forced to make split-second decisions in potentially life-threatening situations.

A Yale University officer, Terrance Pollock, responded to the traffic stop and fired his gun three times at the car. But New Haven State's Attorney Patrick Griffin said Pollock was justified because he believed Eaton and Witherspoon were exchanging gunfire.
