NEW CANAAN, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Greenwich man who was issued a ticket over a parking spot used racial slurs against an officer and said he was singled out because he’s white.

The Advocate of Stamford reports (https://bit.ly/ZQ7E4i ) that David G. Liebenguth was arrested Sept. 17 on a charge of second-degree breach of peace.

The arrest warrant released Wednesday says the New Canaan parking enforcement officer issued a ticket to Liebenguth after finding his car parked in an unpaid spot.

Police say Liebenguth started an argument became verbally abusive. In a letter to New Canaan officials, Liebenguth accused the officer of harassment.

A call to a phone number listed in Liebenguth’s name was not immediately returned Thursday morning.



Liebenguth turned himself in Sept. 17 and was released on a promise to appear in court Sept. 29.
