2 neighborhood cities are at a battle right now as an officer from Norwalk CT is now suing a Bridgeport officer.

On February 3 2011, Officer Rafael Fonseca was hit from behind by Officer Carl Leonzi Sr. CT Post Brian Lockhart reports:

Norwalk’s municipal attorney, Robert  Maslan Jr., wants Bridgeport to reimburse its neighbor to the south for  past and future workers’ compensation payments to Norwalk Police Officer Rafael  Fonseca, Jr.

According to the lawsuit, Fonseca, a Bridgeport resident, suffered painful  injuries to his back and shoulders when, while driving to work, his personal  vehicle was struck from behind by Bridgeport Police Officer Carl  Leonzi Sr.

The incident occurred Feb. 3, 2011, at 3:30 p.m. near Boston Avenue and  William Street.

The police report states Leonzi was driving behind Fonseca in an unmarked  Bridgeport police vehicle with his lights and siren on when Fonseca suddenly  stopped. Leonzi’s car slid into Fonseca’s.

Fonseca told police he heard a siren and stopped but did not see any  emergency lights.
