On December 19, 2016, at about 11:30 a.m., New York State Police at Sidney arrested a Bainbridge, NY woman, Charlotte E. Hart, 62, for the misdemeanor of Criminal Mischief 4th and the violations of Disorderly Conduct and Harassment 2nd degree.

This arrest occurred after troopers responded to a Chenango County 911 report of an ongoing argument at the Xtra Mart on East River Road in the Town of Bainbridge. An investigation determined that Hart had entered the store and was upset with a neighbor, who was working inside, and started a verbal argument with her. During the argument Hart struck the woman in the face and smacked a cellphone from the woman’s hand. She kept the woman’s cellphone until the troopers arrived.

Hart was arraigned in the Town of Bainbridge Court and was released without bail being required. An order of protection was issued against her by the court. Hart’s next court date in the Town of Bainbridge is on January 24, 2017.
