New Britain mayor calls police after alderman's outburst

New Britain (AP) — The head New Britain's Common Council has stepped down after what police say was a drunken confrontation with the mayor in her office.

Michael Trueworthy, the mayor pro tem, says he will remain a city alderman, but will resign his leadership position to deal with an alcohol problem.

Police say they were called to Mayor Erin Stewart's office last Tuesday after after a drunken Truworthy showed up, called her vulgar names and demanded her resignation.

Stewart told police that the 36-year-old Trueworthy also demanded she get him a drink.

Friends were called to bring Trueworthy home.

Trueworthy, who is serving his sixth term as a Democratic alderman, confirmed the accuracy of the police report Monday and asked for forgiveness. The mayor says she does not plan to press charges.
