Bridgeport, Connecticut – Angry residents pelted utility crews with eggs as they tried to restore power in Bridgeport, Connecticut, after the mayor claimed the local power company had shortchanged the state’s largest city as it tries to recover from superstorm Sandy.

United Illuminating workers reported eggs and other objects being thrown at them a day after Mayor Bill Finch said the utility was taking care of wealthy suburbs while his constituents suffered. The unrest caused United Illuminating to pull its workers out until the city agreed to provide police protection.

“Citizens began throwing things at the crews,” Michael West, a spokesman for United Illuminating, told FoxNews.com. “It started to get pretty hairy. They did not feel safe.”

He said the city agreed to provide police support to UI workers after the company made the request.  Full Article
