Connecticut nursing home has 91-year-old arrested while he visits wife

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Officials at a Connecticut nursing home called the police on a 91-year-old man visiting his wife.

Heinz Vonkuthy said Tuesday he was trying to kiss his wife goodbye at Regal Care when Fairfield police arrived and arrested him. The Connecticut Post reports Vonkuthy has been charged with criminal trespass, and was released on a promise to appear in court.

The report states that when officers arrived Vonkuthy was standing outside his wife's room. Police say the nursing home manager told officers Vonkuthy was not allowed to kiss his wife, because they believed he would "pass items to his wife through his mouth."

Police say officers have been called to the nursing home 26 times regarding Vonkuthy.

Officials at the nursing home did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
