The Coast Guard, the state Department of Environmental Protection and a private oil-spill company are cleaning up an oil spill on the Mystic River near the Alford Street bridge even as they try to figure out which underwater cable it's leaking from.
The Coast Guard was scheduled to send divers into the water today to try to find the source of the dielectric oil, used as an insulator in electrical conduits.
NorthEndWaterfront.com reports a local inebriate who was refused entry to the Coast Guard base around midnight tried to fight his way in. A Coast Guard guard subdued him with the help of some pepper spray; he was taken to Mass. General for some pre-booking medical attention.
