KILLINGSWORTH, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut environmental officials say a 55-year-old Madison man has been arrested after allegedly sending an email threat to poison the waters at Chatfield Hollow State Park near Killingworth.
A spokesman said several employees of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection got threatening emails Tuesday, including the one containing the poison threat.
Wayde Isakson was arrested at the state park and taken to state police Troop F. He is charged with threatening, breach of peace and making terroristic threats. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
The park and swimming area are closed while the DEEP emergency response team tests the water. Results are expected Wednesday.
The park is about 20 miles east of New Haven and about 10 miles north of Long Island Sound.
