FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut police department wants people to know that missing your favorite show isn't an emergency.
Fairfield police say they received numerous 911 calls about a cable outage that hit parts of southwestern Connecticut on Sunday night.
The message on the department's Facebook page says the outage is "neither an emergency or a police related concern."
The post warns that 911 should be used for life-threatening emergencies only and misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.
The Twitter account for Cablevision's Optimum cable service initially said the problem would be fixed by 11 p.m. but later said there was no estimated time for service to be restored.
