Billy Pettway

A man was arrested after allegedly shooting a security guard in the face with a pepper spray gun at a YMCA in Fairfield County.

Billy Pettway, of Bridgeport, was arrested around 11:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 3, at the State Street YMCA in Bridgeport.

According to Scott Appleby, director of Emergency Management for Bridgeport, officials originally were informed that the security guard was shot in the face with a BB gun, and police were immediately dispatched.

Once on the scene, officers came across the security guard bleeding from his face and a strong odor of pepper spray in the lobby and security office.

An investigation found that Pettway was being disruptive in the lobby and approached the security office window where he discharged a “pepper spray gun,” Appleby said.
