Okay Southburians before we all jump to conclusions this is not what happened. Carolyn is just fine. Somehow I stranger saw Carolyn with a scratch on her chin due to a pimple has been mistakenly identify as assult! Being friends with them for the last 15 years I know Scott would never lay a hand on anyone. -Erin T.

Erin, we are in serious trouble here in Southbury if our cops can't tell the difference between a bleeding pimple and an assault. Good job sticking up for your friends, but are you really serious?
