A woman’s daughter had been shot at a graduation party so a news reporter wanted to interview her. But the mother, Melissa Lawrence, wasn’t having it. She started throwing rocks and sic-ing her pitbulls on the reporter instead.

Melissa is being charged with assault.
The mother of a teenage girl who was shot on Sunday was arraigned Wednesday afternoon on two felony charges accusing her of assaulting a reporter and a photographer for WLNE-Channel 6 television.
Melissa Lawrence, 35, of 365 Public St. appeared before District Court Judge William Clifton and not guilty pleas were entered on her behalf. Clifton released her on $50,000 personal recognizance, meaning that she was free to leave provided that she appears for her next court date on Aug. 8.
Lawrence, who was handcuffed, wore a pink t-shirt with the message, “My Attitude is Your Problem.”
