A Hammond mother and son were jarred from their beds early Jan. 31 to the sounds of a woman they didn’t know screaming inside their house.

The woman came inside their home in the 900 block of Fifth Street shortly after 1:30 a.m., according to a police report. While the mother called 911, her 27-year-old son attempted to find out what was wrong.

The police dispatcher could hear the woman screaming in the background during the emergency call, according to the report.

When Officer Aaron Berndt arrived, he found the highly impaired woman in the hallway with the son holding her by her arm. She was still yelling.

The woman smelled strongly of alcohol and continued yelling while Berndt placed her in handcuffs and moved her to the front yard.

“She kept asking who I was and calling me names,” the officer wrote. She made several threatening moves toward the officer as well.

The woman was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital for an evaluation and continued screaming at the medical staff.

Natalie D. Marcotte, 30, of Warrenton was booked at Clatsop County Jail on suspicion of criminal trespassing.
