BELFAST, Maine — A woman who allegedly shattered a pint glass over her ex-boyfriend’s head Wednesday night at a Belfast restaurant finished her evening with a stop at Waldo County Jail.

Toni Joy, 25, of Searsmont was arrested after staff at the eatery called police to report a domestic situation occurring at the restaurant.

When police arrived, they found that Joy had left the bar, but the alleged victim told police they had met to discuss some child custody issues. The couple began to argue, and the argument turned violent, eyewitnesses told police. That’s when Joy reportedly grabbed the man’s pint glass, hitting him over the left side of the head and smashing the glass to pieces.

Officers stopped Joy’s vehicle when she was getting on Route 1.

She was charged with domestic violence assault and was released from jail on bail of $100 cash.
