Standoff suspect tells YPD she drank a fifth of whiskey

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown woman who told police she drank a fifth of a gallon of whiskey before a standoff at her south side home faces charges of domestic violence, obstructing official business and endangering children.

Thirty-year-old Angelina Armes was booked into the Mahoning County jail Friday night after police were called to her Rush Boulevard home where she and the father of her children were involved in a confrontation.

The father told police that he was attempting to leave the home when Armes allegedly began slapping him and threw a cinder block at his car, while his oldest daughter was sitting in the back seat.

Police spotted the mother at a window and told the father to move his daughter away from the house in the event that Armes might throw something else at them.

The father told officers that his other daughter, nine-months-old, was still in the house with Armes.

After repeated calls for Armes to come out, police had the fire department begin breaking into the home through the back door.

When police realized that Armes had moved behind the door, firefighters went to the front door and began pounding on it with a sledge hammer.

Before they could break the door down, Armes told police she would open it.

Once inside, police retrieved the infant daughter before handcuffing her mother.

As she was being arrested, police say Armes told them she had consumed approximately a fifth of Benchmark Whiskey that day.
