Stamford officer charged with disorderly conduct

STAMFORD - A Stamford police officer has been charged with disorderly conduct after being accused of behaving inappropriately during a traffic stop last week.

A Norwalk woman claims Officer Paul Mabey showed her a picture of his private parts after he pulled her over for driving while talking on a cell phone.

The Stamford Police Association president says Mabey has been a good worker for 14 years, but there was enough evidence to convince a judge of probable cause.

The Stamford Police Department says Mabey has been relieved of duty with pay since the complaint was filed last week. Police say an internal investigation will be launched once the criminal probe is complete.
