A Springfield police officer is the subject of a lawsuit filed by a couple who claim the officer acted aggressively and threatened them last year.
Erik and Andrea McCubbin say Detective Paul Carpenter was sitting in his car near the couple’s home.
When Andrea McCubbin left the home in her car, they claim Carpenter first gunned his car and aimed toward Erik, who was walking to the mailbox, and then sped off after Andrea and attempted to run her off the road.
Carpenter later returned to the couple’s home, and when they confronted him, they say he threatened to shoot Erik McCubbin.
The lawsuit was filed last month… city officials have not commented on the allegations.
