A couple arrested on the weekend following a fist fight inside a Castaic fast food restaurant that led to the woman kicking out the window of a sheriff’s car allegedly then crawling through it in a bid to get away appeared in court Wednesday.
Heather Carey, 41, of Springfield, PA, and Sean Kenny, a 33-year-old electrician from Santa Clarita were scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court Wednesday.
Each of the defendants face separate and additional charges, Lt. Brenda Cambra of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station told The Signal.
“Carey is charged with one misdemeanor count of vandalism under $400 and two misdemeanor counts of resisting a peace officer,” Ricardo Santiago, spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.
“Kenny is charged with one misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a CNS stimulant,” he said.
Deputies learned of the incident when someone at a Castaic restaurant called them to report a fight.
“On Jan. 14, at 3 p.m., witnesses reported that a man and a woman had a physical fight in a fast food restaurant in the 27700 block of Lake Hughes Road, Castaic, and then left on foot,” Cambra said.
“Deputies responded and located Heather Carey and her boyfriend Sean Kenny walking in the area. Both had injuries and described being assaulted by the other one,” she said.
While handcuffed and in the patrol car, suspect Carey, used her foot to kick the side window of the patrol car out,” Cambra said. “She then attempted to climb out of the car through the open window.
Both remain in custody, with bail set for Kenny at $50,000 and set at $100,000 for Carey, according to arrest documents.
