Police are looking into alleged threats that City Councilman Alfredo Castillo made against Public Facilities Director Craig Nadrizny over maintenance work at the Wonderland of Ice skating rinks.
From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
Acting Public Facilities Director Craig Nadrizny in his Aug. 4 police complaint claims Castillo “became increasingly enraged and started yelling at him,” prevented Nadrizny from entering his vehicle and threatened him after the pair met the prior day in Wonderland’s parking lot off of Glenwood Avenue.
According to Nadrizny’s statement to police, Castillo phoned him the morning of Aug. 3 and asked the director come to the rinks at 3 p.m. without explaining why. When Nadrizny arrived, Castillo was accompanied by Wonderland’s manager, John Ferguson. Nadrizny said the councilman asked him when the city was going to repair the building’s exterior doors.
Nadrizny’s complaint states that his response–per its lease, Wonderland is responsible for the maintenance–is what infuriated Castillo, who allegedly yelled, “You don’t know s***. You better do your job.”
Nadrizny told police Castillo subsequently “stood in front of” him as he tried to climb back into his vehicle to leave, “pumping his chest” and threatening, “I’m going to kick your a** and don’t make me go street on you!”
