Judge Rules Shoot-Gesturing Mom Innocent Of Disorderly Conduct
Judge rules actions inappropriate, not criminal.
Woonsocket Police were called to the school that morning for a report of a woman making threatening gestures at a teacher. They spoke with Armstrong, who denied doing anything wrong and was arrested after a brief struggle. Police had extra patrols assigned to the city's schools following the school shooting in Newtown, CT Dec. 14.
According to a report by WPRI.com, the judge ruled Armstrong's actions were inappropriate, not criminal. The Woonsocket Call reports Judge Christine Jabour found her not guilty after a one-day trial.
Armstrong appeared in Sixth District Court to answer the misdemeanor charge Feb. 25.
