HARASSMENT - MASSENA - Village police charged Jared F. Garrow, 19, of 17 Tamarack St., Massena, with second-degree harassment and endangering the welfare of a child after responding to a domestic dispute complaint at 9:35 a.m. Sunday at his residence.
Garrow reportedly became upset when he returned home Sunday morning and his mother confronted him about his alleged alcohol and drug use. He told his mother he had been at a graduation party, according to court documents.
Laurie Hebert told police her son started yelling and swearing at her and slamming his bedroom door in an argument that took place in front of her 3-year-old daughter.
The harassment charge alleges Garrow shoved a police officer while he was being questioned about the domestic dispute.
He was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $500 cash.
CRIMINAL CONTEMPT - MASSENA - Village police charged Kerry A. Watkins, 27, of 58 Sycamore St., Massena, with a felony count of first-degree criminal contempt, a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal contempt, endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree harassment following an incident at 3:37 a.m. Sunday.
Police said Watkins bit her boyfriend, Allen L. Gardner, during a domestic dispute that took place in front of her five children.
She was picked up in Canton later in the day, arraigned by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and released on her own recognizance.
Mr. Gardner, in his statement to police, said his girlfriend and her five children had arrived at his residence at 177 1/2 Center St. at approximately 3:30 p.m. Sunday. He said his girlfriend consumed approximately 30 Jello shots during the course of the day and night.
He told police he was camping out in a wooded area behind his residence and hosting a social event with several friends when Watkins became enraged because she thought he was talking about her and bit him in the arm just above his elbow. He said the attack occurred even after he told her he was talking about his ex-wife, not her.
The incident violated an order of protection directing Watkins not to harass, annoy or alarm Mr. Gardner as well as a second order signed by St. Lawrence County Family Court Judge Cecily L. Morris on June 25 that directed Watkins not to consume alcohol in the presence of her children.
