Police Visited Home 4 Times for Drunken Domestic Incidents

A Pennsylvania woman is facing several charges after an alleged weekend drinking binge during which she reportedly struck her husband while he was holding their child, drove while intoxicated, and punched through a glass window in their home.
On October 25, a woman from Montoursville was allegedly intoxicated, and she punched a window in the home she shares with her husband and children. The 35-year-old’s hand was sliced from the glass shards, and her husband called the authorities.
Around 4:00 p.m., an officer went to the home for the first of four visits the police made to the home that day due to the woman’s alleged drunkenness and behavior.
A little while after the officer departed from the residence, the woman’s husband found that their vehicle had been damaged. He believed his wife caused it by driving under the influence, and he called the police, who came out a second time. When they got there, they were unable to discuss the situation with her because she was sleeping. The officer wrote in the police report that she had passed out from drinking too much. There was no way to prove the woman drove while intoxicated, so she was not charged.
Just before 9:00 p.m., the woman, who was allegedly still under the influence of alcohol, left the house and drove away. Her husband called the police again, and he told them which way she went when she departed in the vehicle.
The police didn’t see the woman on the road, but she was caught pulling into her driveway, and she was arrested. She was transported to a local hospital, where she refused to consent to a blood test to check her BAC. The police brought her back home when she was released.
The next day, the woman was allegedly intoxicated again, and her husband walked in with their children. The man was reportedly holding one of the youngsters in his arms. His wife allegedly struck him, and after he put down the child, she allegedly kicked him.
The police returned to the residence a fourth time, and the woman was arrested.
After her arraignment hearing, the woman was incarcerated in the Lycoming County Prison. She was facing initial charges of simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child, and harassment. On October 29, the borough police filed additional charges of resisting arrest, DUI, and one summary offense. She is being held on a $15,000 bond.
