PLAYERS: Travis Simms
Police say a former boxing champion and Connecticut city councilor who yelled at officers and refused to leave a disturbance has been zapped with a stun gun and arrested. Travis Simms is free on $1,000 bond. The 41-year-old Simms is a former World Boxing Association light middleweight champion and served two years on the Norwalk city council. He faces charges including breach of peace after his Sunday night arrest. Police say Simms was among those who refused to leave a large disturbance involving the widow of his adopted brother. They say he screamed at them and strongly resisted when they tried to handcuff him so they used a stun gun to subdue him. Simms hasn't responded to requests for comment made Monday. Simms also was arrested in 2010 after authorities say he fought with his twin brother.
