The man who is being held responsible for the death of a Connecticut police officer was recently arrested in Vermont. 32-year-old Michael Pajak of Enfield, Ct. is being held on charges of manslaughter, DUI and other crimes. Court records show that Pajak has a criminal record to include distracted driving and jail time for assault and drug crimes.
Pajak was traveling northbound on I-91 when he lost control of his vehicle and smashed into a police cruiser on the shoulder of the road. The officer was making a routine traffic stop when he was struck by Pajak. Both Pajek and a passenger were treated for injuries after the accident. It was reported that Pajek was having an argument with his girlfriend, the passenger, when the accident occurred.
Thousands of police officers from as far away as California and Louisiana attended the funeral of Trooper Kenneth Hall. The governor, along with hundreds of civilians, lined the street during the procession.
The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren would like to send our deepest condolences to officers family, friends and fellow police officers.
