First, we'll start with the story of John Fignar, a 36 year old resident of Newington, who was arrested by Naugatuck Police last Thursday afternoon, November 12, 2020, after an incident on High Street in town. Here's Mr. Fignar's arrest photo:

According to the Naugatuck Police Arrest Log, Fignar was arrested by officers after he had allegedly frightened the hell out of the residents of a High Street home, causing them to flee their own place, after he had stormed in, half-naked, while screaming, eating branches, and "humping" trees out in the yard.

The report states that Fignar was placed into custody, where he allegedly spat at, and assaulted, his arresting officers. Fignar faces multiple charges, including Criminal Trespass, Breach of Peace, Resisting/Interference with an Officer, and Assault of an Officer. Fignar was held on $25,000 bond, and had an appearance this morning in Waterbury Superior Court.

And then, according to the Naugatuck Police, Tuesday evening, November 17, 2020, officers arrested 66 year old Naugy resident, Francis Keen, after allegedly finding Keen half-naked, while masturbating, with the assistance of a bottle of baby oil in the vicinity of Salem School and the Naugatuck Green. This is the third such arrest for Keen, just this year, whom Naugatuck Police says they had arrested for similar incidents in June and August of this year.
