DUDLEY, Mass. (AP) – A Massachusetts woman is accused of yanking the false teeth out of another woman’s mouth and throwing a beer bottle at her.

Caterina Froio-Chaput, of Oxford, was released on $100 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Police say Froio-Chaput was refused a drink Wednesday at an American Legion and told to leave. They say she started hitting the bartender in the face, then pulled the false teeth from her mouth before hitting her in the chest with the bottle.

The Telegram & Gazette reports Froio-Chaput told police she confronted the bartender who she believed was having an affair with her estranged husband.

When police found the teeth in her pocket, she said they had been planted there.
