Fox News: When a power outage knocked out cable service in parts of Connecticut, many viewers called 911 because they couldn't watch Breaking Bad.
The Fairfield Police Department was not amused and took to its Facebook page to post a refresher course on using its emergency system. The message read:
“We are receiving numerous 911 calls regarding the Cablevison outage. This is neither an emergency or a police related concern. Please direct your inquiries to Cablevision. 911 should only be called for Life Threatening Emergencies ONLY. Incidents that are not of an emergency nature may be reported to the Fairfield Police Department. … Misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.”
