A fight between Westport resident Jessica Hwang and her husband got out of hand Monday night after she allegedly took out her frustrations on his car with a hammer.
Police were called to Hwang's home at 1655 Post Road E. on the report of a public disturbance. Upon arrival, an officer saw Hwang, 37, striking her husband's car with an object, which was later learned to be a hammer. All four car tires were flattened, and Hwang admitted she cut them with a knife.
Hwang and her husband reportedly had been arguing all day. She told police she vandalized her husband's car because it was something he used often. She was charged with first-degree criminal mischief and public disturbance. She was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
