A Mendon, Mass. woman was arrested early Sunday when police arrived at her home just in time to see her screaming at her soon-to-be ex-husband and chasing him around a car.
Police went there after a call to 911 about a family problem. When Officer William Vargas arrived, he saw Nancy Gird chasing her husband.
"The officer got out of his cruiser and she said 'Take me away,' " police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said. "The officer asked what was going on, and she said, 'Arrest me. Take me away.' "
The man said he called police because of Gird's uncontrollable behavior. While he tried to talk to the police, Gird continued yelling at him, saying "I hate you."
Vargas tried to separate the two, and ordered Gird to stay near his car while the officer spoke to her husband. But, after a few seconds, she rushed by the officer and went after her husband again. Vargas handcuffed Gird and put her in his car, then spoke to her husband.
The husband said he and Gird were separated and he lived with his parents. On Friday, Gird served him with divorce papers, but they went out together to a party Saturday night and had a good time. After the party, the pair went their own ways without any argument. But a few minutes later, Gird came to the door and the husband's mother let her in.
"He said Nancy came to his room, yelling, waking him up and knocking things down," said Shastany. "He asked her to leave, and she refused, so he called police." Gird was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
"She said, the only reason she was being arrested was because the officer was a man and he was siding with another man," the lieutenant said. Gird pleaded not guilty and was released without bail. (info from MetroWest Daily News)
