For lightning rod Board of Education member Chris Taylor, it’s a bizarre twist to Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
City Board of Education member Chris Taylor was arrested after police said he posed as a police officer and attempted to kidnap a Seymour man at gunpoint.
Taylor was charged Friday with attempted second-degree kidnapping with a firearm, conspiracy to commit second-degree kidnapping, third-degree assault, impersonating a police officer and risk of injury to a child.
His wife, Stacy Ramos Taylor, was also arrested. She was charged with impersonating a police officer, conspiracy to commit second-degree kidnapping, risk of injury to a child and criminal trespass.
Both were later released after each posted $100,000 bond pending arraignment in Superior Court in Derby on Monday.

Taylor issued this statement (see video above) to News 12:
“This was an isolated incident involving a family member with a substance abuse issue,” Taylor said. “When the full facts of the case come to light, everybody will see the incident in its proper perspective and have a clear understanding of exactly what happened. Meantime, my family and I are putting our faith in God and holding our heads high.”
