Man booked after dispute with Fairfield officers

Westport resident Juan Benitez, 39, was charged with breach of peace around midnight Saturday after urinating in a trash bin at 55 Wine Bar, 55 Miller St., and also threatening a uniformed officer after he had dared off-duty officers to hit him, police said.

Benitez had been hanging out in the area two other men, one of whom struck the wine bar's walls, police said. All were asked to leave, by off-duty police but Benitez was the only one of the three to react belligerently, police said. He cursed at the off-duty officers and refused to produce identification three times for the uniformed officer sent to the scene, police said.

He was released on a promise to appear Aug. 19 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
