An intoxicated Bleeker Street resident was cited for disorderly conduct on Oct. 18 after she threatened a babysitter who was taking care of children next door, according to a Woodbury police report.
From the report:
A babysitter working at a home on Bleeker Street was picking up broken pieces of glass in the yard and that of a neighbor on the afternoon of Oct. 18.
A woman in a neighboring townhome came out and yelled at her. She said, “Get off my lawn” and swore at her and threatened to kill her.
The woman appeared to be intoxicated and had been playing her stereo loud all day. The children the babysitter was watching were scared and got headaches because of the music.
The babysitter then went to the adjoining townhome and asked the woman to turn the music down.
The woman then swore at her again, charged at her in an aggressive manner and bumped her shoulder. The babysitter went back to the home where she was staying and started crying.
As police arrived, at about 4:20 p.m., they could hear music from down the block.
Officers made contact with the woman, who was being belligerent and clearly intoxicated and refused to open the door or answer questions about the incident. She did turn down the music after several requests.
She swore at police, shut the door and turned the music back up.
Police issued the woman citations for disorderly conduct and a noise violation. She refused to accept them, and officers taped the citations to her door.
While police were speaking with the babysitter, the woman with her cell phone took video of officers.
Friends of the woman showed up at one point and told police they would try to calm her down.
The incident was forwarded to the city and county attorneys. The woman was also cited for a noise violation.
