Woman allegedly axes boyfriend’s home

According to a Kootenai County Sheriff’s report, Patricia F. Yager, 57, was arrested for aggravated assault, malicious injury to property and intentional destruction of a telecommunication line.

In the report, deputies said Yager, who has been living with her boyfriend for the past five months, had been drinking and was slurring her words when they arrived at the scene. Inside the home, they found the victim and another man who was flagged down to call police after Yager allegedly became violent.

“When I walked into the residence, I noticed it was a chaotic scene and there were numerous household items strewn about the floor. The front door was completely shattered and the shattered glass debris was all over the entryway of the house and into the living room,” the deputy wrote. “I noticed two large axes on the floor of the living room and dining room.” More here.
