Hundreds without power, man arrested

September 30, 2002

Grady County - A fired utility company worker is arrested for cutting power off to more than 800 homes.

Investigators say, 26-year-old Trinity Curtis Fowler of Whigham was angry at Grady EMC for firing him last week.

Fowler cut off two switches at this substation on Piney Grove Road, Wednesday night. The power was out for two hours in parts of Grady and Decatur County.

Fowler is charged with criminal damage to property. He is out on a five-thousand dollar bond.
