BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Beverly woman apparently frustrated by a construction crew jackhammering in the street outside her home vented her anger by tossing a beer bottle at an officer working a detail.
The officer heard the woman yell ‘‘shut up’’ at about 8:25 a.m. on Monday and saw a plastic bottle land near him.
Police tells The Salem News (http://bit.ly/U0ETua ) when the officer suggested she close her window, she instead tossed a glass bottle that forced the officer to jump out of the way to avoid getting struck.
Authorities say 37-year-old Clover Valasunas was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct.
Valasunas told police she was bothered by the noise.
Jackhammering can legally start at 7 a.m. in Beverly.
