Greenwich PD: Man Violated Protection Order 17 Times

Second arrest by Greenwich Police involves drunk driving suspect found asleep in his car.

A Stamford man faces 17 counts of violation of a protective order stemming from a February incident in Greenwich, according to Greenwich Police.

Matthew J. Diamond, 46, who gave an address of 122 Palmer Hill Road, Stamford, was arrested March 15 by Greenwich Police who obtained an arrest warrant also charging him with one count each of disorderly conduct and threatening. Details of the original Feb. 27 incident were not available.

According to a police report, Diamond was in the custody of the New York City Police Department and on March 8 waived extradition to Greenwich. He was held in lieu of $100,000 bond on the Greenwich charges and was scheduled to appear March 16 in state Superior Court in Stamford.


A man found asleep in his car at the intersection of Arch Street and Exit 3 of I-95 late Thursday was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge, according to Greenwich Police.

According to a police report, officers responded to a call of an "unresponsive male in a car" shortly before midnight March 15 and "the occupant was found to be sleeping." After administering field sobriety tests, officers determined the man was "driving under the influence." He also was ticketed for failure to obey a traffic control device. "When he was awoken (sic) by officers his car rolled into the intersection," officers wrote in the report.

Kenneth B. Arrington, 40, who gave an address of 24 Sherwood Ave., Greenwich, was released after posting $250 bond and scheduled to appear March 30 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
