Police: Salem women arrested after disturbances

SALEM — Two women were arrested within about an hour of each other early yesterday morning after officers responded to reports of disturbances on Pleasant and Washington streets, police say.

Kara Marie Malone, 37, of 149 Federal St., Salem, was arrested on charges of operating with a suspended license, operating an unregistered vehicle, attaching plates and operating an uninsured vehicle.

Jessica Louise Malone, 31, also of 149 Federal St., Salem, was later arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Police responded to a 1:14 a.m. report that two people were having a dispute at a Pleasant Street address and determined that Jessica had been having a disagreement with a neighbor, said Lt. Mary Butler. While on scene, police determined that her spouse,  Kara, was operating a vehicle with a suspended license and arrested her.

Then, at 1:52 a.m., police responded to a report of a disturbance at 152 Washington St. and determined Jessica was upset and had been trying to convince a taxi driver to give her a ride for free, Butler said.

Jessica was “belligerent” and officers took her into custody, Butler said.
