Arbitrator rules against Bridgeport in suspension of Rawls case detective

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim has not commented after an arbitrator ruled the city should return a suspended detective back to duty.
Ganim ordered Detective Angel Llanos to be placed on leave following public outcry over the department's handling of the death of Brenda Lee Rawls.
Rawls' was one of two Bridgeport women whose deaths prompted the state legislature to pass a new law requiring police to notify family members of someone's passing within 24 hours. The other woman was Lauren Smith-Fields.
The arbitrator said he was "not convinced" the police department could justify placing Detective Llanos on leave.
A spokesman says the city attorney is reviewing the ruling and exploring its options.
