STAMFORD, Conn. — A 24-year-old Darien woman who refused to stay off a jetty at Cove Island beach in Stamford on July 4th was given a $150 ticket, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The lifeguard's supervisor sent a parks police officer onto the end of the jetty, with a “Keep Off” sign posted, to get the woman, who said she knew the rocks were off-limits but wanted an explanation, the Advocate said.

The officer said that they are a safety hazard, that it is a conservation area and that is out of sight of the lifeguard. Then he gave her a ticket, the Advocate said.
