Woman Allegedly Threatens to Burn Her Neighbor's House Down

Officers made an arrest for disorderly conduct, fined a New York Times photographer for trespassing and made a warrant arrest for violation of a restraining order.

A Neighborhood Dispute

A woman who lives on the Newtown side of Pastors Walk was arrested for disorderly conduct at 10:53 on New Year's Eve after she allegedly threatened her neighbor, a 60-year-old woman who lives on the Monroe side of the street.

Lisa Gay-Robertson, 51, was released on a written promise to appear in court on Jan. 8.

Police said the Monroe woman had a confrontation with Robertson after Robertson hit her mailbox with her vehicle. Robertson allegedly became combative, threw a punch at the woman and, when officers arrived, started yelling and threatening to burn her neighbor's house down, police said.

Violation of a Restraining Order

A Monroe man was arrested on a warrant on New Year's Day after he allegedly violated a restraining order to have no contact with his daughter on two separate occasions in April.

Photographer Fined for Trespassing

A New York Times photographer took photos of Sandy Hook children arriving at school at Fan Hill Road at around 1:37 p.m. on Wednesday from a residential property across the street, and the homeowner called police to complain about her. An officer gave the photographer an infraction for simple trespass.

That photographer is a creep and why wasn't his name mentioned? I wish that the media would leave these people alone already. The media never helps anything, just a self serving bunch of pariahs.
