Westport Resident Gets Subpoena in AIG Bonus Probe

At least one Westport resident is among American International Group employees who have received subpoenas from Connecticut officials looking into bonuses paid by the insurance company that were funded with federal bailout money.

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and the Legislature’s Banks Committee subpoenaed AIG Chief Executive Officer Edward Liddy and 13 Connecticut employees who benefited from the $165 million in bonuses that drew outrage across the nation this week.

The lawmakers are demanding the employees from AIG’s Financial Product’s office in Wilton appear at a committee hearing Thursday in Hartford to answer questions about the bonuses.

The Westport resident, whose identity is not being published by WestportNow, has hired a private security company to provide additional security around the resident’s home, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Police Arrest Y Lifeguard on Indecency, Risk to Minor Charges

Westport police said today they had arrested a 21-year-old Wilton man who worked as a lifeguard at the Westport Weston Family Y on charges of public indecency and risk of injury to a minor.

Joshua Wang was arrested following a complaint from the Y that he was observed several times exposing and fondling himself in a locker room, said Lt. David Kassay. The Y fired him on March 6 following the complaint, he said.

During an interview, Wang attributed his actions to an existing medical condition, Kassay said.  At no time did he approach any youth in the locker room, he said.

Wang was contacted about the active warrant for his arrest and turned himself in, Kassay said. He was released on a $1,000 bond for a court date of March 30 at Norwalk Superior Court.
