Police in the town of North Branford have arrested 24-year-old Candace Kiley for assaulting a 12-year-old girl at a party last month...because she was supposedly making eyes at Kiley's 30-year-old boyfriend. You stay classy, Connecticut!
The fight occurred at a family birthday party on July 23rd but police were not able to arrest Kiley until this week, as she had fled the scene and they needed to obtain a warrant. The 12-year-old and Kiley did not know each other, the Register Citizen reports. The younger girl was at the party because she is a friend of Kiley's younger sister.
The incident reportedly went something like this: between 7 or 8 p.m. Kiley's boyfriend spilled a drink in the kitchen at the same time as the victim went to get ice from the fridge. While the man cleaned, she waited—at which point Kiley walked in and accused the girl of looking at her boyfriend. According to the police she then grabbed the girl's hair and threw her to the floor where the girl suffered a head injury and began to have an asthma attack. The assault continued until family members were finally able to pry Kiley off the girl.
Police have charged the woman with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and risk of injury to a minor. It does not appear that there will be any charges against her boyfriend for being irresistible to women of all ages.
