On 9 Apr 09 Sgt. Eddy and Deputy Sheriffs
McLeish and Reynolds were dispatched to a melee at 13669 County
Nine Road, New Matamoras. The home’s resident, Kelly
J. Hanes, age 39, said the incident began when she was speaking
on the phone to Augustine Brunoni Jr., age 28, 8411 County
Nine Road, Newport, about his vehicle that was broken down
and sitting on her property. Ms. Hanes mentioned her teenage
son may have entered Mr. Brunoni’s vehicle and consumed
two prescription pills he found in it. Mr. Brunoni flew off
the handle and before long appeared at Ms. Hanes’ residence
along with his mother Karen, age 51. On the front porch the
Brunonis began yelling, screaming and tried to enter the residence.
A friend of Ms. Hanes, Thomas J. Humphrey, age 31, 14075 County
Nine Road, New Matamoras, was at the residence and said he
attempted to calm Mr. Brunoni when Brunoni attempted to punch
him. The punch missed and Brunoni instead struck his mother.
During the incident Mr. Humphrey took Mr. Brunoni to the ground,
at which time Ms. Brunoni stumbled off the porch and fell on
her son’s arm. The Brunoni comedy of errors concluded
when Mr. Brunoni screamed his arm was injured and was released
from the ground. As a result of the incident Deputy Sheriff
Reynolds requested summonses for Mr. Humphrey, Mr. Brunoni
and Ms. Brunoni for disorderly conduct. Deputy Reynolds will
also request a summons for the juvenile to appear in Juvenile
Court on a charge of delinquency for stealing the medication.
