She was also arrested at least three times, according to the police, twice after violent confrontations....That's the NYT.

There were ample warnings over the years concerning Ms. Menendez.
In 2003, according to the police, she attacked another stranger, Daniel Conlisk, a retired firefighter, as he took out his garbage in Queens.
