Melissa LawrenceProvidence, RI – Melissa Lawrence was arrested after being caught on camera threatening a news crew and instructing her pit bulls to attack an ABC 6 news crew.

The new crew were there to get Lawrence’s reaction regarding her teenage daughter being shot at a kindergarten graduation party. Although the crew were never on Lawrence’s property and remained on a public street, Lawrence was not happy with them being there and her reaction was more than the crew bargained for.

After cursing at the crew, she throws a rock at the cameraman’s head. She then grabs a baseball bat and instructs her two dogs to attack the crew. The dogs end up gong after reporter Abbey Niezgoda. The dogs end up biting her forearm and chase the poor woman into the backyard of another home before Lawrence finally calls them off.

After Niezgoda was treated for a dog bite and received a tetanus shot, the news crew filed a police report. Lawrence was subsequently arrested and has been charged with two counts of felony assault with a dangerous weapon. Lawrence’s daughter has since been released from the hospital and is currently recovering from a gunshot wound to her lower back. The 16-year-old shooter has turned himself into police.

I have no issues whatsoever with the charges filed against Lawrence, as what she did was extremely stupid and dangerous. But I have to admit, listening to Niezgoda yell “Oww!” before running from the two dogs in her high heels was kind of funny to watch. Glad she’s okay, though.

  • why were the Media even bothering her when her daughter was victim anyway..until your victim you won’t understand being angry with media

  • Very stupid indeed however I can relate to the anger even in the event it’s missdirected. News reporters can be fucking annoying.

  • Agreed…I’m sure that woman already has some serious pent up anger after being informed her innocent child was shot! I know I’d be a ticking time bomb too if it was my little girl.

  • Buffettgirl

    Gee Melissa, how’d that end up working out for you? Like your daughter doesn’t have enough on her plate? Now she gets to worry about her idiotic Mother too??? Fucktard…

  • Probably so they can get the information needed to write a news report that I will eventually use to write my article so that you guys can come read about it. Dirty laundry and all that.

  • my son was murdered and I heard all kind of lies on the News about it..they even said they spoke to my sons his family..they i understand!!! let them be @ your door after a tragedy..

  • newstarshipsmell

    LOL! That video is pretty funny.

  • Melissa Lawrence Arrested After Instructing Her Two Dogs To Attack News Crew –

  • Kelly – I know what you mean. My mother was attacked and we had to hide out for days. The media were ruthless in destroying her credibility because of the nature of the case. When they can’t get to the victim or the victim’s family, they will find a way to ad-lib and misquote.

  • Jubilex

    OW! – OMG that entire thing was so stupid.

  • LuvsHorror

    What a crazy bitch.

  • techsupp0rt

    Wow. Not only does her daughter have to deal with getting shot in the back, she gets to come back to a mom who is now nationally known ghetto trash psychopath, and her dogs are probably going to be dead. Good job, mom. You’re a rancid cunt.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I’d be willing to bet the kid doesn’t want to leave the hospital EVER. Way to help your daughter’s healing process, dumbass!
    Oh, and I just LOVED the mother’s final racist epithet at the end… [ insert sarcasm font ]

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Isn’t the daughter a bit old to be graduating from kindergarten?

  • Jose Pinones

    These anthropoids shouldnt be allowed to own animals!

  • Media got what they deserved. Sorry. Media today don’t know when to quit.

  • Twisted1

    If a white person had made that comment at the end. Sharpton and Jackson would be screaming for them to be charged with a hate crime. Hmmm not a peep from them on this. Wonder why?

  • Twisted1

    Way to be a pit bull owner stereotype. Just found out my brothers trailer park trash ex wife and her boyfriend have a whole pack of pits. They got mama, daddy, and two not so little pups. They do not have jobs and they are obviously not fixed or trained. This is a tragedy waiting to happen. Owning a dangerous breed should be like riding a rollercoaster. You must have a IQ this high to own.

  • captaingrumpy

    These dumb black ones that have lived off the teet of white Americans for too long. Put them all on an Island and they would wipe themselves out.

  • tkaz

    I was actually impressed when the owner called off the dogs…and they LISTENED!
    But seriously reporter chick, why not chuck the heels & sprint away? A few dogs after me & all ladylikeness goes out the window! RUN!!

  • tkaz

    Are there kids? 🙁

    Grow up, racist.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Or throw the heels at the dogs to distract them!

  • She required a tetanus shot. Those dogs are worthless.

  • RedScarab

    no child left behind

  • Hivewhacker

    Good fucking god, this woman is a raging cunt. How fucking stupid are you to throw a rock at a camera operator, then set the goddamned pit bulls on a reporter while being filmed?
    Jeezus fucking christ, what a motherfucking idiot.

  • Whatevn

    Dumb ass reporter. Who the FUCK stays there after you see the woman go back into her house with a “be right back”. There is no situation that could have ended well. Lucky she didnt have a gun. Not to mention, she came BACK to the house after the woman called off the dogs?! Hoping for a final juicey shot?

    No duh the black woman was crazy, but the reporter isnt getting any awards for her intelligence either.

  • Bop

    Yum yum eat ’em up!

  • Coyote

    Agreed, the woman should have just gone back in her house, stayed there and ignored the reporter, who would have left eventually. Reporters are known for overstepping boundaries all in the name of a story. The reporter should have left when it was obvious she was causing trouble. Dumb ass bitches made for some good entertainment though.

  • Pyncky

    That woman is the epitome of street rat. She is the kind of person that racist people picture and talk about when stereotyping AoAD. With all the progress the black community has made, it only takes one ill-bred ill-tempered and ill-mannered idiot to let Larry Redneck point and exclaim “See. That’s how they are.” Way to go, you caterpillared belly mean stupid bitch.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Whatever happened to just saying, “No comment,” and locking the door?

  • Defafan

    That would require this animal to think.

  • Defafan

    These are the same assholes shooting each other at a kindergarten graduation, are you really shocked at her stupidity (glad her 16 yr. graduated kindergarten though, its a start for this family).

  • Donna

    There is nothing funny about this at all. Those dogs are dangerous and if that woman has gotten killed her A$$ would have been begging not to be locked up. SMH

  • JohnQknowitall

    What a surprise that Pit Bulls are part of this story.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Aw come on now, rats are cute. Don’t compare this trash to intelligent and adorable pets 🙂

  • Tenbux

    Hurry up and die in a gun cleaning accident.

  • Tenbux

    While I despise internet acronyms, I’m also pretty good with them. I’m left scratching my head at SMH, though.
    Shitty Media Hater? Stupid Moron Hoe? Salami Mustard Hedonist? Slacking Monotone Hobo? Shemale Mullet Head? Shoggoth Maiden of Hastur?

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Obviously this one was, they forgot to move her to Year 1 until she reached her teens LOL

  • ultracreep

    Shaking my head.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I don’t down arrow people and I have not now, but this comment is pretty rough and over the top even for this site.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I make a comment about a Pit Bull and I get two down votes, but someone makes a pretty severe racial slur (see above: anthropoid) and gets 7 up votes. That’s disgusting….

  • LizzyBorden

    Not from that neighborhood she’s not…… Oh, they’ll be celebrating the graduation & babys birth jointly…..

  • LizzyBorden

    If those dogs wanted to hurt that reporter they would have…. Looks like they were playing chase…. And of course, people make it worse than it actually was….
    The reporter was an idiot, Aunt Jemimas a stupid bitch, and how valiant of camera dude to keep rolling that beautiful bean footage w/ no efforts to help his partner… Know why?!??! Because he saw absolutely no threat in the dogs behavior…. and although I wasn’t there, neither did I.

    BTW those dogs weren’t pits either, they looked like Shepherd mixes….. But lets enrich the story by throwing in the word PITBULL….

  • newstarshipsmell

    They do not have jobs and they are obviously not fixed or trained.

    Are you talking about the people, or the dogs?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Okay… don’t use “Pitbull.” How about “unnamed dog breed that is the choice of people who think they are cool and generally marry people who are complete asses because they believe then can change them?”

  • LizzyBorden

    Believe they can change people or pitbulls?!?! Your senseless rant was confusing to even my megamind…..
    People cant be changed. Animals absolutely can.
    Mister Knowitall, you don’t know shit.

  • LizzyBorden

    SEE!?!? Back to my people cant be changed. They love conflict, to see others hurt, and don’t bat an eye.
    A dog, however, does as we teach them…… Their owners, once again, PEOPLE. Dogs aren’t born with hate, they are bred to hate.

  • JohnQknowitall


  • Leasha

    I LOVE how she reported on the story about herself. She should have pulled a Gail Hailstorm a la Scary Movie (the first one) and reported while being chased. THAT would have made a story!

  • Cezar

    The moneky should be in jail, then sent to a mental hospital. (Forever)
    The dogs should be confiscated.
    The news crew was on private property. If she didn’t want to answer any questions, then she should have gone back into her home.
