Altercation after Jeannatte pool game leads to arrest of mother, son

Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

A family fight over a game of pool at a Jeannette bar last week led to the arrest of a Jeannette woman and her son.

Tammy Gross, 53, of 810 Scott Ave., was charged by Sgt. Jose Gonzales with aggravated assault on a police officer for allegedly slapping him on the right side of the face.

Gross' son, Scott David Gross, 25, of the same address, was charged with simple assault for allegedly hitting Michael Moffe in the left eye and punching his sister, Jessica Girard, on the right side of the face.

The incident occurred at 2:20 a.m. Saturday outside Johnny's Wife's Place along Harrison Avenue in the city's Arlington neighborhood.

Gonzales said in the criminal complaint that he had told Tammy Gross three times to stop yelling and swearing, but she refused.

She was arraigned before Unity District Judge Michael Mahady and faces a preliminary hearing Dec. 5 before Jeannette District Judge Joseph DeMarchis.

The affidavit filed at DeMarchis' office stated that Moffe tackled Scott Gross outside the bar after seeing Gross knock down Girard with a punch to the face.

Girard defeated Scott Gross in a game of pool at the bar.

Police said Moffe punched Gross, who fell and hit his head on a rock, knocking him unconscious. Jeannette E.M.S. took Gross to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville for treatment, police said.

A date has not been set for Gross' preliminary hearing.
