STAMFORD - A Stamford man has pleaded guilty to attempted sexual abuse related to an incident during a school field trip.

Tomas Manzano, 35, admitted to groping several pre-teen girls while chaperoning his son's field trip.

Prosecutors say he smelled like alcohol and became so combative it took eight or more police officers to arrest him.

Manzano was released from jail as part of the plea agreeing to time served since his June arrest followed by 10 years probation.
