Westport Woman Arrested After Clothing Dispute

A fight with a friend about borrowed clothing led to the arrest of 20-year-old Stephanie Bernier in Westport on Friday night.

According to police, Bernier, of 17 Lees Lane, Westport, got into an argument with a friend over clothing Bernier allegedly borrowed and failed to return. The argument turned into a physical fight, which Bernier allegedly started, and some of the friend's property was damaged, police said.

Bernier was charged with breach of peace and third-degree criminal mischief. She was released on a promise to appear in court Jan. 24.

? Orange resident Jeremy Heins turned himself in to Westport police Jan. 11 after learning the department held a warrant for his arrest.

He was charged with second-degree larceny and was scheduled to appear in court Jan. 21.
