On Oct. 15 at about 12:14 a.m., after several hours of drinking at Boilermaker's on Allen Street, Sara Fernandes, 29, of 2284 State Park Road, Greenville, SC, became loud and disruptive, and was promptly shut off by the staff.
The cesation of alcoholic beverages did not sit well with Fernandes, who then became violently agitated, according to the police report. The escalation of her unlady-like behavior prompted the employees of Boilermakers to ask her to leave.
Being kicked out of the bar was also not to Fernandes's liking, and she responded by throwing a few punches around, causing a fight.
Kimberly Mitchell, 40, said Fernandes grabbed her hair and pulled out a chunk (Responding officer Justin Mowry noted a patch her hair was missing), and also struck her in the cheek with a small expandable baton she took from Fernandes during the fight.
Tracey Charleska, 28, whom Fernandes also assaulted during the fight, confirmed Mitchell's story.
When Mowry arrived at the scene, he saw Fernandes, who had blood on her face from a cut on her head and was walking quickly away from the bar. Mowry stopped her to ask how she'd gotten injured. Fernandes told Mowry she had been hit during the fight, but hadn't been involved in it.
Mowry asked if she was armed, and Fernandes said she had mace in her bag, but nothing else. However, during a pat-down, Mowry discovered a 3 1/4 inch fixed double-edged knife. Mowry also noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from Feranndes.
A few moments later, another officer approached, informing Mowry that Fernandes had been identified by Mitchell and Charleska as the woman who started the fight.
Fernandes was transported to Landmark Medical Center, where she made racial slurs to the medical staff until Mowry told her to stop. She was transported back to the Woonsocket Police Department, where she was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of prohibited weapons other than a firearm.
