White Plains Diner Brawl Shatters $5,000 Mirror

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Police said they believe an eight-person brawl inside of the White Plains Coach Diner early Saturday morning led to the destruction of a $5,000 custom-made mirror in the 50 Westchester Ave. restaurant.

Police arrived just after the fight broke up around 4:25 a.m. Saturday and found three tables overturned next to several broken plates.

No witnesses were able to identify those involved in the fight. However, staff and diners' accounts led police to believe that at least eight people were involved in the melee.

Although some suspects were stopped, nobody was arrested. The diner did not immediately have video surveillance available to help officers track down those responsible for breaking the mirror, who would potentially be charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony.

Other news from the police blotter includes:

- Walmart loss prevention staff stopped Erica Oneill, 28, of White Plains, believing that she had shoplifted, and authorities later discovered oxycodone, as well as $31.69 worth of stolen goods, in her purse, police said.

Store employees told police they saw Oneill stick four cosmetic items in her gray and black purse and leave the store at approximately 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Back at headquarters, officers said they found several white pills labeled "M523," which poison control identified as oxycodone. Police said Oneill didn't have a prescription for the pills.

She was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

- Officers were called to The Galleria mall Bath and Body Works Saturday evening when a Stamford, Conn. woman reported her purse as stolen.

The 34-year-told police she put her purse down by the register for a moment and realized it was taken "a short time" later.

The bag also contained $20 in cash, several credit cards, checks, her social security card, driver's license, and house and car keys.

No video surveillance of the store was available.
