DuBois-based State Police received a call from staff at The Hut Restaurant regarding Susan Lynn Antonuccio causing a disturbance in the restaurant.

According to the complaint, during the investigation, it was established that Antonuccio was attempting to make unauthorized entry into personal vehicles on the premises and damaged a ceramic rabbit while inside.

The complaint notes that a separate call was then received reporting that Antonuccio was sitting on the porch of a private residence on State Route 2019.
