Bridgeport woman charged after altercation with Wilton Stop & Shop strikers
WILTON — A Bridgeport woman is accused of grabbing a phone from a Stop & Shop employee on strike, who was recording her arguing with strikers at a Wilton store on Tuesday, according to police.
Shabrina Fudd, 30, of Bridgeport, was given a misdemeanor summons for second-degree breach of peace.
Wilton police officers responded to the Stop & Shop on River Road in Wilton on Tuesday afternoon for a disturbance between employees on strike and a customer, police said.
On Tuesday, employees of the grocery chain were in their sixth day of a strike statewide as contract negotiations continued.
When officers got to the Wilton store, they found that Fudd had argued with the Stop & Shop employees who were on strike. It was unclear if Fudd had crossed the picket line or planned to shop at the store.
Police said Fudd became angry when she saw she was being recorded on video by one of the strikers. Fudd allegedly grabbed the phone from the employee’s hand while yelling at them.
There were no injuries reported during the altercation. Police removed Fudd from the premises.
She is expected to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on April 30 to answer to her charge.
Correction: An earlier version incorrectly spelled the last name of the woman charged as Shabrina Fludd. Wilton police on Wednesday corrected the name as Fudd.
