SUFFERN, N.Y. -- A Suffern police officer, seeking to have his criminal contempt case tossed, is arguing that he was arrested as part of a personal vendetta on his department’s part, according to a report by lohud.com.

Lance Weinstein was arrested in February after police said he violated a court order to stay at least 500 feet away from his former wife, according to media reports.

The officer, who has been out on medical leave for nearly two years, was spotted by a police officer and Chief Clarke Osborn while he was taking his children to see relatives -- and was apparently too close to his ex’s Suffern home, the lohud story said.

Weinstein’s lawyer is claiming that police went out of their way to bring charges that weren’t even initiated by his former spouse, lohud reported.
