A 26-year-old New York City man, who was in Connecticut last week for a taping of the Jerry Springer show, is accused of hitting a Stamford Police officer.
Passersby called 911 on May 1 after spotting a drunken Julien Trubman stumbling in the street near Veteran’s Park around 3:00 p.m.
Police caught up with Trubman stumbling along Atlantic Street and took him into custody for his own protection.
The Bronx man was taken to Stamford Hospital, where he became abusive to staff.
As the officer tried to control Trubman there was a struggle and the cop tore a tendon and ligament from a bone in his arm.
Trubman, who told officers he was in town for a taping of the Jerry Springer show, was charged with second-degree breach of peace, assault on a police officer and interfering with a police officer.
The officer will need surgery to repair the damage to his arm.
It’s unclear whether Turbman was intoxicated during the taping of the Jerry show.
