MONROE, CT — Monroe Police Sgt. Pete Howard wore a helmet and harness, while rappelling down all 34 stories of the Mohegan Sun building in Uncasville on Sept. 4 in the Over the Edge fundraiser for Special Olympics Connecticut.
Howard, who received a 15-minute tutorial before the steady drop and had a brake to control his descent, said it was a fun experience.
