HARASSMENT: Mary Lou Schultz, 66, 4378 Townline Road, Lockport, was charged Wednesday with second-degree harassment. Deputies arrived at Schultz’s home, where they saw the victim sitting on top of Schultz. A fight reportedly broke out between the two when the victim tried to take away Schultz’s car keys, preventing Schultz from drinking and driving. Schultz then hit the victim and bit off the victim’s necklace, a report said. Deputies said Schultz was transported to Niagara Memorial Hospital and later released after she started punching and scratching herself, and pulling her own hair in attempts to blame the injuries on the victim. Schultz is scheduled to appear Tuesday on Town of Cambria Court.
