In the midst of a custody battle for his two kids, Michael Nowacki of New Canaan was arrested for allegedly stalking his ex-wife. He filed a complaint against the New Canaan PD over that arrest. On the day of a hearing for his complaint, Nowacki, 57, allegedly e-mailed his ex in spite of a protective order, was arrested and then arrested again for allegedly getting belligerent with town employees for canceling the hearing when he didn't show (because he was being arrested for the first time that day). Nowacki is settling all of this, the New Canaan Advertiser reports, by filing a mega-lawsuit against more than 140 people, including Gov. Dannel Malloy, former Gov. M. Jodi Rell and Attorney General George Jepsen.

A clerk at M&J Wines and Liquors in Manchester found it "very suspicious" when two women walked in wearing blue bodysuits and masks from the Saw film series. He called police, even before they walked up to the counter and one said, "This is a stickup." The women, who revealed themselves to be friends of the clerk, were arrested, despite their pleas the whole thing was a joke, reports the Hartford Courant.

The most inappropriate comment ever: A balding man approached a woman in a Wilton Stop and Shop and said her 4-year-old niece "looked very pretty in her dress" and will "be hot when she's 21," though he "would take her now." (Police told the Wilton Patch website they were unable to find the man after the aunt reported the incident.)

Police were called back to the home of Roderick Lewis, the West Haven man who allegedly bit a police dog last year. This time, Lewis, 24, shouted profanity at officers and announced that if his heart were to stop beating, a microchip buried in it would detonate explosives in bank vaults across the globe, destroying the planet, police told the Milford-Orange Bulletin.

Two men on bicycles stormed a couple exiting a class at Dance Dimensions in Norwalk, knocking both to the ground and grabbing their bags. The handle of the woman's bag broke, report the Norwalk Patch site, but the assailants biked away with the man's dance clothes.
