Conn. Officer Arrested in Genitals Photo Case

STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Connecticut police officer has been arrested on a misdemeanor charge for allegedly showing a female motorist a cell phone picture of his genitals during a traffic stop.

Stamford Officer Paul Mabey, who was named the city's "Officer of the Year" in 2006, was charged with disorderly conduct Wednesday and released on a promise to appear in Superior Court at a later date. He was suspended with pay on Friday.

Police say a 26-year-old Norwalk woman came forward last week with allegations that Mabey made inappropriate passes at her and showed her the cell phone picture during a traffic stop on May 26.

The 40-year-old Mabey couldn't be reached for comment Thursday. There's no phone listing for him. The 14-year police veteran is married with a baby.
