No prosecution for guard in Conn. model scuffle

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - September 5, 2009 Seymour got into a dispute with guard Joseph Babnik in June when he was watching the Greenwich estate of her estranged husband, billionaire newsprint magnate Peter Brant.

Babnik told police Seymour had taken documents from him and he was trying to get them back. The former New York City police officer from Carmel, N.Y., was arrested and given a misdemeanor summons on a disorderly conduct charge.

But the state's attorney on Friday declined to prosecute the case after Seymour and Babnik reached a closed-door agreement. The charge will be dismissed in a year if Babnik isn't arrested again.

Lawyers for Seymour and Babnik have declined to comment.
