Lol- reminds me of the time I cut the cable to my neighbor's house in the midst of a NBA playoff game he was watching.. Wife and I were planting a shrub in our yard- subdivisions suck.

When a fiber circuit goes down due to damage by 'others', the responsible party can be charged for lost revenue. Lets say that a circuit carried signal that ultimately converted to carry 1000 long distance calls or other data. That traffic has a known value per minute/hour, etc. You can be billed for the actual repair cost AND the lost revenue during the out of service period. Good luck.

If its just a fiber drop that feeds your home or a neighbor, it's not a big deal. If its a main fiber cable that feeds a lot of folks or a lot of circuits that feed a lot of things, things will get pricey if they push the issue. If the line is flat and about an inch wide, it's just a fiber drop. If its round and about the diameter of your pinky or bigger, it's a fiber cable.
