BRATTLEBORO –– Brittany Janaszak, 39, of Brattleboro, has been charged with five counts, including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, after allegedly flinging dog feces on her neighbor’s lawn and violating a no-contact order.

On April 12, Janaszak was arraigned on charges of trespass, simple assault, disorderly conduct, unlawful mischief, unauthorized use of a vehicle, and aggravated disorderly conduct. She was ordered not to have contact with three of her Meadowbrook Road neighbors.

The following day, a neighbor reported that Janaszak was trespassing, had flung dog feces on their lawn, and hung a bag of dog feces from their lawn chair.

Brattleboro Police Officer Cody Johnson arrested Janaszak, who resisted by becoming “dead weight,” attempting to trip the officer, and spinning herself around on the ground.

She also resisted being placed in the police cruiser and began beating her face on the window and kicking the divider.

At the police station, Janaszak repeatedly punched and kicked the cell door.

In addition to the previous charges, Janaszak has been charged with unlawful trespass, aggravated disorderly conduct for fighting and obstructing vehicle or pedestrian traffic, and simple assault of a police officer.
