BRIDGEPORT - A top Bridgeport official has been suspended without pay after police say they arrested him for interfering with officers and cursing at them.

Mayor Bill Finch says he suspended Deputy Chief Administrative Officer John Gomes after meeting with him Monday. Police say the incident happened after they responded to reports of loud music coming from a party Gomes was attending Sunday morning at a clubhouse on Linen Street.

Gomes denies the report and says officers unfairly targeted him.
