A woman was jailed late last week following an incident that occurred in the area of 27 Arapahoe Drive, in Penn Forest Township, Carbon County.

State police at Fern Ridge said Anna Lee Simpson, of Abrightsville, was yelling obscenities in her yard towards Mauri Madrak, of Albrightsville. Madrak went to check on the welfare of Simpson. Simpson then struck Madrak while she was waling away. Troopers arrived and warned Simpson to cease her actions.

A time later troopers were called back to the scene because Simpson was again yelling obscenities and death threats towards Madrak. Simpson was taken into custody and lodged in the county prison, troopers said.

The incidents occurred on July 19.
