Burrillville woman, released following disorderly arrest, found hiding in basement


BURRILLVILLE – An incident that began as a domestic dispute, reportedly fueled by, “Fireball,” shots, led to two arrests in one evening for a Burrillville woman on Sunday, May 9.

Karen Falcone, 45, was charged with domestic disorderly conduct following the first arrest, released, then arrested again, and charged with violation of a no contact order, plus two counts of domestic violence.

Police were reportedly called to Falcone’s residence around 6 p.m. for a domestic disturbance, and were told she was throwing things, including unopened boxes of food, which officers say were scattered about the driveway. Inside the home, Fireball shots could be found amid knocked down and broken items, including mugs, a plant and a jewelry box.

Falcone’s husband told officers she was throwing the nips while knocking things over, and the suspect was visibly intoxicated, according to the arrest report. She began telling police, “just arrest me,” placing her hands behind her back and attempting to enter the cruiser.

Police did arrest Falcone, and report that erratic behavior continued at the station, where she took off her clothes when a female officer was trying to search her, and broke her own necklace when asked to remove her jewelry.

The report notes that Falcone was also belligerent to the bail commissioner, interrupting him and throwing an envelope of cash to pay her $200 bail. The judge Issued no contact order with Falcone’s 45-year-old husband, and a date to reappear.

Soon after, around 11:30 p.m., police were called back to the Tarkiln Road residence for reports that Falcone was laying down in the middle of the street. When officers returned, the husband reportedly told them that Falcone had left on foot and fled into the woods, but they searched the residence, and found her in the basement.

During transport, Falcone was reportedly banging her fists on window and attempting to jump from the moving car.

Falcon was held overnight and arraigned on Monday, May 10, when she was sentenced to counseling and batterer’s intervention.
