Manchester woman throws chair at judge during arraignment
Kristie Chapman, 38, of 140 Central St., who had sat hunched over in the jury box, appearing to chew on her fingers as the other detainees were arraigned, became increasingly agitated as Judge Thomas Barry went through the arraignment process with her, asking routine questions, including whether she would swear to the accuracy of information she had placed on an application for a court-appointed lawyer.
She also said that's why she had gone to her mother's Chestnut Street address, the basis for the trespass charge. That's where she's accused of spitting on one police officer and struggling with two officers trying to handcuff her.
As deputies hustled Chapman out of the room, followed by police prosecutors, a bailiff retrieved the broken chair. The judge appeared unruffled. Chapman is likely to be charged with at least criminal mischief as a result of the chair-throwing. Trial was set for Sept. 11.
Two Massachusetts residents were arraigned Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, the man for violating a domestic violence protective order and the woman for simple assault and criminal mischief.
Offers an explanation
Bruce Allaire, 34, of 45 Myrtle St., pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to violation of a protective order.
Allaire told Judge Thomas Barry: "I was under the impression is was dropped." Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier said Allaire is under the umbrella of a 12-month suspended sentence on a January conviction for violation of a protective order and was indicted for felony simple assault by the May Hillsborough County North Grand Jury, both cases involving the same woman.
Grandmother was theft victim
Michael Revell, 22, of 245 York St., Stoughton, Mass., pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to misdemeanor charges of theft by unauthorized taking and theft by deception.
Bail was set at $2,000 cash/surety, with conditions barring him from contact with his grandmother and the store. Trial was set for Sept. 11.
