Fire Hydrant Maintenance Leads to Angry Confrontation in Vienna

A Vienna resident angrily cursed out a town employee in a confrontation over a running fire hydrant Wednesday.

The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. on the 300 block of Windover Avenue, NW, according to the latest Vienna Police Department crime report.

“A Town of Vienna employee was running a fire hydrant to clear the water when a resident became angry and confronted the employee using profanity,” the crime report said. “The neighbor advised he was upset because the water was flooding his yard.”
