Fight lands Temple man in jail


WILTON — An assault at a local garage Thursday landed a Temple man behind bars.

Franklin L. Cushman, 46, was arrested on charges of violating a protection from harassment order and violating bail conditions Thursday, Wilton Detective Richard Billian said.

Cushman was at Lake Road Auto just before noon when a woman came to get her vehicle, he said. During a confrontation, the woman was punched in the mouth. NorthStar Ambulance was called and the woman and Cushman, who was bitten, were evaluated. Both refused further care, he said.

Police Chief Dennis Brown assisted Billian at the scene.
