WBRZ reports that the Sheriff's office responded to the situation and arrested 38 year old Bridgette Digerolamo. She was charged with criminal damage to property and aggravated assault with a firearm.
Sheriff's deputies told WBRZ that Digerolamo shouted, "Turn the f*** around, you're causing my house to flood" before she went into the house and returned outside with a gun yelling, "You better move".
Digerolamo told deputies, "I was in fear of my life, and my child's life, I want an attorney" when being questioned.
This is scary. I am thankful that no one was hurt in this situation as tensions were very high amidst rising waters in the area.
