WFSB - Eyewitness News

Technical Discussion: Showers today, then strong storms overnightNOON UPDATE... It's a muggy and windy afternoon, and some towns have hit the 80 degree mark at this hour. Hartford, New Haven, and Bridgeport are all reporting 80. The humidity remains high, and strong southeasterly winds are gusting at times over 30mph. Windsor Locks recorded a recent gust of 31mph. Showers and even a few downpours have been moving across central and northern CT over the last few hours. The coverage area of showers will increase as we head into the evening hours, in advance of a slow moving but strong cold front. The roughest weather appears to be between 11pm and 7am in terms of the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms. ***previous discussion*** THURSDAY & FRIDAY… The air will remain quite humid through the end of the week. Meanwhile, the cold front will remain to the west of Connecticut through today, then it will slowly pass through the state tomorrow. That means our unsettled pattern continues. Like yesterday, showers will be spotty today and there may be a few breaks in the clouds. It is going to be warm with highs running above average, peaking 75-80. Downpours and thunderstorms are likely later tonight into tomorrow. Storms that develop could be strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has included most of Connecticut in a “marginal” risk area for damaging wind tomorrow. Temperatures to close out the week will only reach 70 to 75. Showers end tomorrow afternoon west to east. Between now and then, most of the state should receive 0.5-1.5” of rain, but locally higher amounts of up to 2” are possible. On the heels of the front, drier air will gradually overspread the state tomorrow on a westerly breeze --- so by the evening, it will start to feel a bit more comfortable. THE FIRST WEEKEND OF FALL… The first half of the weekend will be quite nice with a partly to mostly sunny sky. The humidity will continue to drop, but the air will be warm with highs 75-80 Saturday afternoon. At night, it will be clear to partly cloudy and cool with lows in the 50s. Sunday should be partly sunny with highs in the 70s. The morning will be dry, but a disturbance may swing through the state during the afternoon, and it could stir up a few showers. Any showers will end Sunday night, then the clouds will clear away. Temperatures will drop to near 50 by dawn. NEXT WEEK… Monday is shaping up to be a nice day. Sunshine will mix with some clouds during the afternoon and temperatures will peak in the mid-70s. Low pressure could move into New England on Tuesday. If that happens, there will be a chance for showers and potentially a few thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Wednesday should be partly to mostly sunny, breezy and cooler with highs 70-75. Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest, updated by Mark Dixon with Scot Haney “Copyright 2021 WFSB (Meredith Corporation).

Utah city officials will investigate police response to Gabby Petito and her fiancé's domestic dispute(CNN) -- The city of Moab, Utah, said it is launching an investigation into the Moab City Police Department's handling of a dispute between <a href="" target="_blank">Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie</a> in August several weeks before she was killed. Moab said in a statement the police department has received both praises and criticism for "their response and their resolution of the incident involving Ms. Petito and Mr. Laundrie." "The Moab City Police Department has clear standards for officer conduct during a possible domestic dispute and our officers are trained to follow those standards and protocol," the city said. "At this time, the City of Moab is unaware of any breach of Police Department policy during this incident. However, the City will conduct a formal investigation and, based on the results, will take any next steps that may be appropriate." The investigation stems from police interactions with Petito, 22, and Laundrie, 23, on August 12 in the midst of their <a href="" target="_blank">#VanLife road trip to parks in the American West</a>. In Moab, a bystander called 911 to report a possible domestic dispute involving the couple and their white van, and the ensuing police interaction was captured by police body-camera footage and a police report. The dispute, as well as <a href="" target="_blank">an incident at a Wyoming restaurant</a>, illuminates the growing stresses and tensions in their relationship even as they documented a sunnier version of their journey on social media. The police interaction <a href="" target="_blank">came about two weeks before Petito</a> last communicated with her family. Laundrie returned to his parents' home in Florida without her on September 1, and her family reported her missing 10 days later. Her body was found on Sunday in Wyoming near where the couple had last been seen together, and a coroner determined she died by homicide. Laundrie, who had declined to speak with investigators, <a href="" target="_blank">has been missing since last week</a>. With the power of hindsight, Moab said investigators will be gathering all the facts and evidence to evaluate the police response to the incident. "We understand that individuals can view the same situation in very different ways, and we recognize how the death of Ms. Petito more than two weeks later in Wyoming might lead to speculation, in hindsight, about actions taken during the incident in Moab. The purpose of the City's formal investigation is to gather the underlying facts and evidence necessary to make a thorough, informed evaluation of such actions," according to the city. The police department will make all information from the Petito incident available to agencies investigating her death, and officers will also be available to answer any questions, the statement said. CNN has reached out to the Moab City Police Department for a statement. What the report and body-camera footage show The police interaction began with a call from a witness who saw what he believed to be a concerning incident. In the 911 audio from that day, which was provided by the Grand County Sheriff's Office, the caller told dispatch he wanted to report a domestic dispute involving a couple who drove away in a white van. "We drove by and the gentleman was slapping the girl," the caller said. "Then we stopped. They ran up and down the sidewalk. He proceeded to hit her, hopped in the car and they drove off." In a report from Moab police, another witness named Christopher told police he saw the couple arguing over a phone. The witness said that when Laundrie got into the van, Petito appeared to hit him in the arm and then climbed through the driver's side door as if he had locked her out, the report states. Police located the van and pulled the couple over after the vehicle exceeded the speed limit, abruptly left its lane and struck a curb, according to the police report. The officer walked up to the passenger side of the vehicle, where a crying Petito told him, "We've just been fighting this morning. Personal issues," according to the body-camera footage. After interviewing Petito, Laundrie and the witness, the officers describe the incident as an argument that turned into a physical fight involving pushing and scratching. Laundrie had minor visible scratches on his face and right arm, but "had no fear for his safety" and "did not exhibit any indicators that he may be a victim of 'battered boyfriend syndrome,'" the report notes. "He was assessed to be at low risk of danger or harm as a result of his proximity to his fiance." Petito, meanwhile, was crying uncontrollably and breathing heavily, the report notes. She is described in the report as being in a "confused and emotional state." In the body-camera footage, one officer explains that they consider Petito to be the aggressor and Laundrie to be the victim. No charges were filed, and at officers' suggestion, the couple separated for the night, with Laundrie staying at a hotel and Petito taking the van. "(B)oth the male and female reported they are in love and engaged to be married and desperately didn't wish to see anyone charged with a crime," officer Eric Pratt writes in the report. "After evaluating the totality of the circumstances, I do not believe the situation escalated to the level of a domestic assault as much as that of a mental health crisis," officer Daniel Robbins wrote in the report. "I then determined the most appropriate course of action would be to help separate the parties for the night so they could reset their mental states without interference from one another." Petito and Laundrie agreed with that plan, the report states. They had their own cell phones in case of emergency, the report adds. The police report also notes that two National Park Service officers responded to the scene. One of the officers, Melissa Hulls, told <a href="" target="_blank">Deseret News</a> that she spoke with Petito and warned her that her relationship with Laundrie had the markings of a "toxic" one. "I was imploring with her to reevaluate the relationship, asking her if she was happy in the relationship with him, and basically saying this was an opportunity for her to find another path, to make a change in her life," Hulls told Deseret News. "This wasn't a good day for anybody," she added. "We thought we were making the right decision when we left them." The-CNN-Wire™ &amp; © 2021 Cable News Network, Inc., a WarnerMedia Company.

As CDC meets about vaccine booster, UConn Health infectious disease expert weighs in(WFSB) – Soon, millions more Americans will be eligible to get a COVID-19 booster shot after the federal regulators gave the green light to Pfizer's additional dose. Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is meeting to develop specific guidelines for who is eligible for the extra dose, but tens of millions of Americans will likely be able to get their boosters right away. Channel 3 spoke with a local infectious disease expert to learn more about the change. Dr. David Banach from UConn Health called it a step in the right direction. "I think the booster dose does make sense as a way to add that extra protection," Banach said. Banach acknowledged that people have questions about it, particularly if it's even necessary. However, he said it's about strengthening immunity. "Now we’ve seen the data that those older individuals have waning antibody levels and may be at increased risk for infection after vaccinations," he said. Another key is that only the Pfizer version of the vaccine has been approved as a booster. Those who took Moderna or Johnson &amp; Johnson will have to wait. However, that advice could change. "I’d expect that in the coming weeks, maybe even days, we’ll get more granular data on those other vaccines and that’ll help guide those decisions in terms of what the next step is gonna look like," Banach said. Wednesday night, the Food and Drug Administration authorized expanded access to booster shots of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine. The decision would apply to people aged 65 and up as well as those with weakened immune systems. The agency also said a third dose should also be offered to adults whose job or living situation frequently exposes them to the virus. Banach said that if someone is eligible and has been vaccinated for six months, don't hesitate to get the booster. He said there's nothing to worry about. "The booster dose is actually the same vaccine," he explained. "It’s the same Pfizer vaccine that individuals would have received for their first and second dose." In a tweet, White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the announcement "a major step forward.” Today’s FDA decision is a major step forward in our effort to provide Americans with additional protection from COVID-19. We have been preparing for weeks to administer booster shots to eligible Americans and are ready to do so following CDC’s final recommendation later this week&mdash; Jen Psaki (@PressSec) <a href="">September 23, 2021</a> In Connecticut, the decision came on the heels of a slight dip in the COVID positivity rate, which was down to 2.15 percent. As of Wednesday afternoon’s numbers, 269 patients were treated for COVID-19 in hospitals in the state. The booster shots could make a real difference, according to doctors. It's now up to the CDC to decide how and when they will be distributed; however, the advisory vote could happen within the next two or three days. Wednesday night, President Joe Biden expressed optimism about the approval, but he also stressed that the U.S. needs to do more to help developing nations get the vaccine. Biden said he pledged that the U.S. will donate at least a billion doses of the Pfizer vaccines to developing nations.
Judge allows New Haven officer accused in deadly Las Vegas crash to return to CTLAS VEGAS, NV (WFSB) - A New Haven officer believed to be behind the wheel of a DUI crash that killed a fellow officer faced a judge on Thursday morning. Officer Robert Ferraro, 34, was arrested Friday on charges of driving under the influence resulting in death and reckless driving. Ferrero appeared in court at 7:30 a.m. pacific time, 10:30 a.m. eastern. New Haven officer Joshua Castellano, who was a passenger in the vehicle, a Rolls-Royce, was killed. The crash happened around 4 a.m. last Friday in Las Vegas. In court on Thursday, Ferraro posted a $100,000 bond and the judge said he could travel back to Connecticut. He ordered an alcohol/drug monitoring device to be worn by Ferraro. A status check is scheduled for next month, and Ferraro's preliminary hearing is slated for January. The Clark County Coroner's Office said Monday that Castellano died of multiple blunt force trauma. His death was ruled an accident. Castellano's body was brought back to Connecticut on Tuesday.

Woman accused of berating, attacking Navy sailor has court case continuedNEW BRITAIN, CT (WFSB) - A woman accused of attacking and insulting a Navy Sailor at a pizza shop in Berlin was scheduled to face a judge on Thursday. Lori Desjardins, 45, of Southington, faces assault and breach of peace charges. She was due in New Britain Superior Court, but had the case continued until Oct. 27. In video that went viral on social media, Desjardins berated U.S. Navy sailor Sean Nolte Jr. because she thought he was wearing a fake uniform. Police said the incident happened on Sept. 11 at Central Pizza in Berlin. Nolte identified himself on social media as being the victim in the video. He wrote that the woman, now identified as Desjardins, didn't believe his uniform as real and called him a disgrace to the USA. She was seen in the video hitting him with an open hand. According to police documents, Desjardins told them that she was not in the right frame of mind because of some ongoing mental health issues and a problem with alcohol. "I am very sorry for my actions and do not believe I was in the right frame of mind," Desjardins told investigators, according to a warrant.
A served warrant for drugs caused nearby Naugatuck school to be locked downNAUGATUCK, CT (WFSB) - A school in Naugatuck was locked down on Thursday morning while police served a warrant for drugs. Naugatuck police said the police activity was on Carroll Street. As a result, the Central Avenue School was put in temporary lockdown. The lockdown has since been lifted. Police said they helped the Connecticut State Police with the investigation. They also said there was no threat to the public. State police said they executed the warrant during the early morning hours of Thursday. They uncovered a number of firearms, cocaine, and drug packaging materials. The suspects were not home at the time. However, two children were there. They were put into custody of the Department of Children and Families. While troopers were on the scene, the unidentified suspects, male and female, drove by the home. State police said the male was in violation of a full protective order with the female. The suspects failed to stop for them. Troopers said the two pulled into a neighboring driveway, left the vehicle, and fled on foot. That's what prompted the school lockdown. Eyewitnesses saw the male suspect threw away a weapon and drugs while he ran. Both were recovered by state police. Detectives eventually found him hiding. They said they found him with a leg injury that he suffered during his escape attempt. He was transported to a hospital because of the injuries. An arrest warrant is being sought for him. The female was also found and taken into custody. She was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drugs near a school, possession with intent to deliver, operating a drug factory, two counts of risk of injury to a minor, and interfering.
