Prosecutors have dropped a disorderly conduct charged lodged against a Colchester selectmen who was cited after allegedly berating a police officer who pulled over the car he was a passenger in.
Brian McNeil’s case was about to go to trial yesterday when prosecutors offered to drop the charge if he donated $350 to charity. He agreed, and sent a $350 money order to the Visiting Nurse Association.
McNeil, who admitted no wrongdoing, had been cited March 28th after Police Officer Brent Harvie pulled over a van drivn by Frank Winant.
Harvie says McNeil got out of the van during the traffic stop and began yelling and swearing at him, prompting Harvie to write him a ticket for disorderly conduct.
