Police Arrest Flagman After Report That He Was Masturbating in Vehicle During Break

Police on Thursday afternoon arrested a traffic control agent that a witness said was masturbating inside of his vehicle while on a break.

The 26-year-old man was charged with public indecency.

Officers were dispatched to the area of South Avenue and Hawthorne Road around 12:16 p.m. after the witness made his or her report, police said.

Confronted, the flagman told police that his pants had been down “and he was fixing his underwear and adjusting his genitals but not masturbating,” according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police took the New Haven resident into custody on the misdemeanor charge. 

He was held on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear Friday in state Superior Court in Norwalk.

According to Eversource, which currently is digging up New Canaan roads as a natural gas line is installed, the section of South Avenue between Hawthorne and Farm Roads should be completed by June 29.
