Cable outage that interrupts ‘Breaking Bad’ sparks 911 outrage
“Calls placed to 911 are intended to be for emergencies only. But that doesn’t stop people from phoning the police line for their own personal crises.
“Police in Fairfield, Conn., say that a cable outage in the area during the airing of the drama “Breaking Bad” on Sunday night resulted in a spate of calls to police from people outraged they were missing their show about chemistry teacher turned meth-making drug lord Walter White.
“A message caught on the Fairfield Police Department’s Facebook page that has since been deleted read, ‘We are receiving numerous calls regarding the Cablevision outage. This is neither an emergency or a police related concern. Please direct your inquiries to Cablevision’.”
