Fist fight at clothes giveaway


Police are trying to determine how a free clothes giveaway at the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley on Glenwood Avenue turned into a fistfight between two women.

A woman told police she was browsing through the clothes Tuesday when another woman began going through her basket of selected items. The woman told the other woman she had already chosen the items, but the second woman attacked her, throwing punches and kicking.

The alleged attacker left the establishment before police arrived.

Former liaison faces charges


Honeya D. Price, 41, a former family liaison at Warren City Schools’ Lincoln K-8 building, has been indicted on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

She will be arraigned April 8 in Trumbull County Commmon Pleas Court.

The school district fired Price, of Perkinswood Boulevard Northeast, after Warren police arrested her Jan. 16 for purportedly brandishing a firearm in the parking lot of Giant Eagle on Elm Road Northeast.

Price filed a lawsuit against the school district earlier this month seeking to get her job back on the grounds that the school district failed to conduct a proper hearing on the matter and didn’t have just cause to terminate her.
