A Fairfield man was charged with breach of peace and interfering with a 911 call Tuesday after he allegedly attempted to smother his mother with a comforter, police said.
Randy Zingo, 38, of Philemon Street, reportedly told police that he had thrown a comforter over his mother to "shut her up," department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.
According to Zingo's account, his mother, 66, had been out with a boyfriend for three days and had just returned home.
His mother, who was reportedly unsteady on her feet and out of breath, told officers that Zingo took the phone away from her as she tried to call 911, according to police.
Zingo was held in lieu of a $5,000 bond and was scheduled to have appeared in court on Wednesday.
