On April 10 around 6:30 p.m., Plainfield police were called to a home to investigate an alleged domestic dispute involving Heather Poplasky, 32.

Police learned that during an argument, Poplasky allegedly grabbed a large kitchen knife and threatened to cut herself so it would look like the victim had wounded her, Hartford’s WTIC-TV reported.

Officers took Poplasky into custody and charged her with disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment, the report said.

After she was released on bond, Poplasky was taken to an area hospital for observation, where she was allegedly involved in an incident with staff that resulted in Putnam police issuing her a summons, according to WTIC-TV.

After her release from the hospital the following day, Poplasky allegedly returned to the home where the domestic dispute occurred, violating her conditions of release.

Plainfield police rearrested Poplasky on charges including disorderly conduct and criminal trespass, the station reported.

While being held on $25,000 bail pending her April 12 arraignment, Poplasky received a criminal mischief charge for purposely using toilet paper and trash to clog a toilet and flood her jail cell, police said.
