UI crews threatened again Tuesday

Fairfield Police received two calls in 10 minutes Tuesday morning from UI crews reporting that they had been threatened by customers.

“This is unacceptable to say the least,” Fairfield Police wrote in a Facebook post. “There are over 100 crews in town trying to restore service to everyone. When someone threatens them they WILL stop working and contact police. This not only delays UI in restoring power but also ties up valuable police resources in town. Please have respect and let UI work.”

Two incidents were reported Monday. No arrests have been made as a result of any of the four complaints by utility crews.

As of Tuesday morning 2.5% of Fairfield remains without power. That does not include the beach area, First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a Code RED message Tuesday.

“Much of the outages relate to downed poles, either UI or AT&T,” Tetreau said.
