Twain Harte, CA – Some crass words over a dog resulted in the arrest of a Twain Harte woman for spraying her elderly neighbor with pepper spray.
On Saturday (5/7) evening, Tuolumne Sheriff’s Deputies were called to Towhee Lane in Twain Harte for a dispute between neighbors. Sheriff’s officials relayed that 27-year-old Andrea Cooper of Twain Harte and her 71-year-old neighbor had argued over Cooper’s dog. It is unclear exactly what the dog did to cause the neighbors to quarrel.
