ARLINGTON (CBS) – An Arlington woman was arrested during the Blizzard of 2015, charged with assaulting a neighbor with a handheld snow blower.

Police were called to Park Ave. around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday after a woman suffered cuts to her foot, allegedly caused by her neighbor.

Responding officers found that the 60-year-old woman had been in an ongoing dispute with Barbara Davis, 61. The victim previously filed for a restraining order against Davis, police said.

Davis was arrested and charged with violation of a harassment prevention order, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and mayhem.

She was ordered held on $35,040 cash bail until she is arraigned in Cambridge District Court.

“Emotions may run high during a historic weather event like the Blizzard we just endured, but that is no excuse for violence,” Arlington Police Chief Frederick Ryan said. “We are supposed to come together as a community during events like this, and I am very disappointed with these allegations.”
