Turkey Day Goes Bad for Woman
A Barrington woman faces three domestic charges after she allegedly assaulted her sister-in-law after a Thanksgiving dinner.
A Thanksgiving celebration for a Barrington woman, 34, got a bit out of hand and she now faces three domestic charges.
Lorette M. Theriault, of 24 Sweetbriar Road, was arrested on Thursday evening, Nov. 22, after she allegedly assaulted her sister-in-law, 45, after Thanksgiving dinner at a Promenade Street home, according to Barrington Police Chief John LaCross.
Theriault faces charges of domestic simple assault and battery, domestic disorderly conduct, and vandalism and malicious injury to property, according to the Barrington police report.
Theriault allegedly attacked her sister-in law-about 9:15 pm after she reportedly became intoxicated, said LaCross. The fight began when she was told to leave the home after she got into an altercation with an 8-year-old boy while playing a video game.
Theriault reportedly grabbed and pulled the victim’s shirt, scratched her shoulder, and hit her twice in the face, said LaCross.
Theriault left her sister-in-law’s home after the physical confrontation. She was arrested at her home at around 9:34 pm, LaCross said.
At the police station, the woman reportedly vomited in a bucket and then continued her bad behavior by throwing the vomit over a fingerprint machine in the booking room, LaCross said.
She was held overnight in the police station and taken to District Court on Friday morning to face the charges.
