Police responded to a parking lot at Greenwich Hospital on a report of a verbal dispute there. A woman in the parking lot told police a man had followed her for several miles on North Street to the hospital. He parked his car behind her’s [sic] and began yelling about an incident on Monday in which she had cut of his car in traffic, according to police. The woman was described as “visibly shaking and crying” by officers.
John Slattery, 43, of Canoe Hill Road, was charged with a misdemeanor count of breach of peace. He was released without bail and ordered to appear in court later this month.
Anyone can lose his temper, but chasing a woman several miles down North Street to confront her doesn’t strike me as the behavior of someone who’d be cool in a crisis.
Plus, that’s loutish behavior. Bad form.
UPDATE: Holy cow, a reader spotted what I hadn’t: the incident that so fired up our steroid broker happened on a Monday, he spent the week seething about it and when he spotted her on Friday, he went after her. This is not someone who snapped, it’s the behavior of a very disturbed individual.
Released without bail? Good Lord, Annie grab your gun.
