FAIRFIELD — A Pioneer Lane woman was arrested Friday evening, and later ticketed, for two separate disturbances.
Melinda Hrabstock, 37, was charged with simple trespass and second-degree breach of peace for an incident at Cumberland Farms, 975 Kings Highway East. The store manager called around 5:45 p.m. about a woman who was in the store and apparently intoxicated. According to the police report, Hrabstock stumbled and fell in the store and began arguing with a customer and using profanities.
The manager provided police with the registration plate of Hrabstock’s car and, while on their way to her home, received a call from a neighbor on Bloomfield Drive. He said Hrabstock was at his front door, banging on the door and screaming at him, a situation that continued for about five minutes after he asked her to leave.
When police got to Hrabstock’s home, her mother said she was asleep. While police were speaking with her mother, Hrabstock woke up and was issued summonses for the Cumberland Farms incident. She was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Bridgeport Oct. 23.
Police were called back to the Hrabstock home about two hours later, this time by another neighbor who said Hrabstock and her mother were outside yelling, an occurrence she told police happens regularly. No one answered the door at the Hrabstock home, and police left a ticket for Hrabstock for disorderly conduct.
