Amber Reenock, 28, of 44 E. Water St., Lansford, faces charges from an incident which took place at 44 E. Water St. on Sept. 10 at 7:16 p.m. Charges of two counts of simple assault and harassment were filed by Ofc. Joshua Tom.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, here's what happened:

Tom received a call about an active domestic at Reenock's address. The complainant was at a friend's house at 30 E. Abbott St. He arrived there and spoke with the complainant, Roxanne Reenock, who had red marks on her neck as if she had been choked.

Roxanne Reenock said her daughter, Amber, had assaulted her. Roxanne said she and Amber had been drinking at their home when they started to argue, and Amber began assaulting her. Amber also allegedly "went crazy" and began smashing up the house.

She allegedly grabbed Roxanne by the hair and neck, threw her to the floor and got on top of her, and slammed her head off the floor, yelling she was going to kill her.

Roxanne was able to get out of the house with her four-year-old grandson.

Tom and Officer Chris Ondrus found Amber Reenock standing in the street on E. Water Street and arrested her for domestic violence. She was advised of her Miranda rights, and refused to speak with police. Tom observed a small cut above her right eye.

While in transport, Amber remarked, "I should have killed her!"
