11:42pm–#Fairfield CT–Fairfield Police were called to 689 Kings Hwy East outside the Sky Hookah Lounge where a large fight broke out.  This was the first weekend Fairfield Police did not monitor outside the establishment  in weeks to babysit.  Fairfield Police have had numerous headaches monitoring the after hours club.    A bill has been introduced by Rep. Brenda Kupchick, R-Fairfield, giving municipal police the ability to regulate the hours of hookah lounges, which are establishments where people can gather to smoke tobacco through a hookah, a type of waterpipe. But because the lounges do not serve food or alcohol, they’re not currently regulated by the state, MacNamara said.  “It’s basically a nightclub that’s open all night long. It becomes an afte-hours club. When the state-regulated bars close, people are now flocking to these hookah lounges,” he said.

Capt. Joshua Zabin, the Fairfield Police Department’s patrol commander, said officers often respond to calls at hookah lounges, which operate from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. He said it has a negative impact on the neighborhood  “It generates neighbor complaints. Everything from idling cars outside, radios playing, foot traffic, accidents, actual fights occurring in the street, and a tremendous amount of litter through the early morning hours. Everything from liquor bottles . . . down to trash, condoms, men and women urinating in public,” he said.
