The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - By Pamela Lehman

Beth­le­hem po­lice say a woman ran afoul of the law af­ter she tossed a de­cap­i­tated chicken in the drive­way of her exboyfrien­d’s home.

Po­lice say the in­ci­dent be­gan Tues­day af­ter a do­mes­tic dispute around 10:55 p.m. in­volv­ing 29-year-old Ya­jaira Fer­nan­dez Vazquez and her ex-boyfriend, whom in­ves­ti­ga­tors de­clined to name. Po­lice say no one was in­jured dur­ing the dispute.

Just be­fore mid­night, po­lice say they were called to the ex-boyfriend’s home in the 1200 block of East Fourth Street for a re­port of a “sus­pi­cious pack­age.”

A woman who is re­lated to the home­owner said she was sit­ting in her car near the drive­way when she saw Fer­nan­dez-Vazquez’s car drive up the road. Fer­nan­dez-Vazquez stopped her car in front of the home and tossed a bloody plas­tic bag out of her win­dow, po­lice said.

Af­ter toss­ing the bag, the woman heard Fer­nan­dez Vazquez say, “Dead peo­ple will come af­ter you!” and drove away.

In­side the blood-soaked bag, po­lice say they found the chicken with its head miss­ing.

The woman told po­lice that Fer­nan­dez-Vazquez had pre­vi­ously told her that she “prac­ticed witch­craft.”

Po­lice charged Fer­nan­dez Vazquez with ha­rass­ment, scat­ter­ing rub­bish and dis­or­derly con­duct.

“It doesn’t mat­ter what kind of dispute is go­ing on, you can’t toss a dead chicken into some­one’s drive­way,” said Beth­le­hem po­lice Chief Mark DiLuzio.

Fer­nan­dez-Vazquez de­nied throw­ing the dead chicken, po­lice say.
