Two journalists sprayed with bug spray outside court on Tuesday morning while covering a story connected to Omar Thornton’s alleged beer theft from Hartford Distributors.

Christy Quail, 33, of Enfield, was in Superior Court in Enfield on Tuesday, accused of buying stolen beer from Thornton. As she left her court appearance on Tuesday, her husband, Sean Quail, 33, sprayed the journalists with a More.. can of some chemical, police said.

CT Now reports that reporter George Colli and photographer Alan Chaniewski were sprayed with a chemical, possibly bug spray. The can appears to be Spectracide wasp and hornet spray. The warning in the material safety data sheet states that you should avoid breathing vapors of the product and avoid contact with the liquid.
