Deanna M. Smith

A Williamstown woman is accused leaving threatening voicemails for several firefighters and sending them threatening text messages after she was asked to leave the Williamstown Field Days on Friday.

Oswego County deputies say 41-year-old Deanna M. Smith, of Williamstown, had allegedly caused problems at the Williamstown Field Days at the fairgrounds around 9:50 p.m. Friday. When members of the Williamstown Fire Department asked her to leave, she refused.

Deputies say Smith reportedly attempted to push the officer who was escorting her from the grounds and continued to call him names.

Smith was charged with disorderly conduct and was released on an appearance ticket returnable to Town of Williamstown Court on September 17.

Deputies say that after leaving, Smith allegedly placed several phone calls to the Williamstown Firehouse and to several fire department members. She allegedly left threatening messages on their voicemail and also sent threatening text messages.

Smith was advised by a deputy to stop calling the firehouse or she would be arrested again.

Smith was arrested for aggravated harassment around 8:45 p.m. Saturday. She was arraigned before the Town of Parish Court and released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to answer this charge before Town of Williamstown Court on Tuesday, August 20.
