FAIRFIELD — When a Northwood Road resident heard voices outside her window around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, she looked out and saw two men looking into her car.
She yelled for them to get off her property and called police as they ran across the street and down a neighbor’s driveway. Police arrived on the scene, and one of the two men began to run away. He was caught when he slipped and fell in the wet driveway, cutting his face, hands, and knees.
Both Adam Shea, 20, of West Haven, and Matthew Attolino, 20, of Orange, used their brother’s names when first questioned by police. According to police, the two were intoxicated, with Shea spitting while in the police car and telling officers they were all going to be fired after he sued the department.
Shea and Attolino were both charged with simple trespass, criminal impersonation, and interfering with an officer. Shea was also charged with second-degree forgery after signing arrest documents with his brother’s name.
Attolino, who fell in the driveway, was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, and released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Bridgeport Aug. 21.
Shea was released to his parents after posting a $500 bond. He is also scheduled to appear in court Aug. 21.
