Elizabeth Loveday, 38
Hmm I am detecting the possibility of some anger issues. Geeze I dont think Mediation is the way to go on this one.
http://www.fosters.com/apps/pbcs.dll.../FOSnews010103PORTSMOUTH — Police arrested a Hampton woman Friday morning at Portsmouth District Court for allegedly biting and shoving a court-appointed mediator who was involved in her family court proceedings.
Elizabeth Loveday, 38, of 27 Perkins Ave., was taken into custody at the courthouse around 10:35 a.m. after she allegedly became combative in a second floor hallway and began to yell threatening comments to the other party involved.
According to prosecutor Karl Durand, as Loveday was being escorted down the hallway by the mediator, she "started yelling and screaming." "The mediator tried to guide her out and keep her away from the other party," he said. "Loveday then bit the mediator and kept yelling and screaming."
As a result, Loveday is charged with violating a protective order-domestic violence related, and two counts of simple assault, all misdemeanors. The violating a protective order charge stems from a court order out of Suffolk County, Mass., and alleges that Loveday threatened to kill the member of the other party involved while in the local courthouse.
The assault charges allege that Loveday bit the mediator on the right forearm and then shoved her in the chest while attempting to get at the other party. Following her arrest, Loveday was arraigned on the charges and was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.
http://www.seacoastonline.com/articl...-NEWS-90714033PORTSMOUTH — A Hampton woman accused of biting a court mediator after a session of marital mediation was court-ordered to undergo an evaluation before criminal charges proceed against her.
Elizabeth Loveday, 38, of 27 Perkins Ave., appeared in Portsmouth District Court Tuesday to face two counts of simple assault, a criminal threatening charge and a count of violating a protective order. Police allege that following the mediation session in the city courthouse Loveday threatened to kill her estranged mate, then hit and bit the mediator.
As Loveday sat at a defendant’s table July 14, her attorney and a city prosecutor met at the judge’s bench for an extended conference that could not be heard in the courtroom. Following that conference, Judge Sawako Gardner told Loveday her case will be continued until an assessment of her is complete.
Police allege Loveday was exiting a courthouse meeting room when she shouted to her ex, “I will kill you.” Shortly after, in a courthouse hallway, she is alleged to have swung at, struck, then bit the mediator on her forearm.
The incident was captured on the court’s video surveillance system.
Loveday was arraigned in Dover District Court on May 15 and is free on personal recognizance bail.
