Christmas Eve tirade lands woman in jail


EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – Police say a woman spent Christmas Day in Rensselaer County Jail after attacking her family.

East Greenbush Police say 30-year-old Jessica Leahey went on a Christmas Eve tirade.

According to authorities, Leahey, who lives with a relative, became highly agitated after apparently not getting her way, and turned violent against her family, knocking down the Christmas tree and upsetting a miniature Christmas Village.

Police say Leahey pulled the telephone wires out to prevent a 911 call, then proceeded to knock holes through the sheetrock walls of the home and punched out a kitchen window before police were able to arrive and take her into custody.

Leahey is charged with two counts of criminal mischief. She was arraigned early Christmas morning in Schodack Town Court and remanded to County Jail.
