Alleged glass throwing leads to assault charge against Madawaska woman

MADAWASKA, Maine — Local police charged a Madawaska woman with assault following a Jan. 21 altercation at the American Legion Post 147 hall.

Britney Patterson, 31, of Madawaska allegedly threw a drink glass at a man who was attempting to intervene in an argument between Patterson and another man, according to Police Chief Ross Dubois.

The incident occurred shortly before 10 p.m inside the Legion hall bar, said Dubois, who did not identify either man.

According to the chief, the drink glass struck the man in the head. A crew with the Madawaska Ambulance Department responded, but the man refused medical treatment or transport, he added.

Officer Garrett Albert later summonsed Patterson at her residence, but she refused to sign the summons, Dubois said. Albert then summonsed Patterson for refusing to sign the initial assault notification.

Dubois said the assault charge is a Class D crime and the refusal to sign is a Class E crime.

Patterson is scheduled to appear at Madawaska District Court on March 7.
