Local candidate in car hit by fire chief

October 27, 2014

COVENTRY— A motor vehicle accident in early September involving the Coventry Anthony Fire District’s Fire Chief Paul Labbadia resulted in his being found to be driving on a suspended license. Labbadia’s license has since been reinstated and all charges were expunged.
Because of an outstanding parking ticket in a car registered to Labbadia that he said his daughter drives, his license was suspended because the ticket wasn’t posted as paid, he explained. Labbadia said he did not know his license was suspended prior to the accident that happened the afternoon of Sept. 6, 2014.
