Yanked DVD player results in drinking habits dispute
A Huntington Turnpike woman was arrested for disorderly conduct and assault in the third degree at her home at 7:50 p.m. Sunday, May 15.
Police said Cheryl Vazzano, 41, scratched her husband’s chest during a dispute over her drinking habits.
According to a report, Vazzano’s husband called to complain that she had tried to take their 14-year-old son’s DVD player out of his room. When the husband tried to stop her, Vazzano attacked him, leaving scratch marks, the report said.
The husband told police that the situation was almost a daily occurrence because of Vazzano’s drinking.
Vazzano gave police a brief and vague testimony of the situation, the report added, before she was taken into custody.
She was held on a $500 bond and released. She was scheduled to appear in court Monday, May 16.
