Police: After fight, Woman tosses decapitated chicken into ex-boyfriend’s driveway
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.
