PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh woman was arrested on felony assault and weapon possession charges Tuesday.

On Jan. 31, Carrie Gehrig, 21, allegedly engaged in an argument with her ex-boyfriend that resulted in her throwing a fork at his face, causing him to suffer a laceration to his left cheek, Plattsburgh City Police said.

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh woman was injured in a two-car accident Tuesday.

Brittany Bracale, 20, was driving south on Prospect Avenue in the City of Plattsburgh shortly before 11 a.m. when she came upon a vehicle that was stopped near Prospect’s intersection with Broad Street because the vehicle was out of gas, according to Plattsburgh City Police.

The driver of that vehicle waved Bracale on and she proceeded to the intersection but once she reached it and drove across it, the light had turned red, police said.

As her vehicle crossed the intersection, it was struck by a car driven by Barry Brault, 45, of West Chazy, police said.
