An Amityville woman was arrested Sunday morning after she allegedly assaulted a woman with a camera tripod outside a West Hempstead night club.
According to police, Kashmire Dawson, 24, and a 26-year-old female victim were in the bathroom at Rumors Nightclub just before 4 a.m. A verbal confrontation ensued regarding tipping the bathroom attendant, and both women were escorted out of the club.
While in the parking lot, the argument escalated, and Dawson went to her car to get a camera tripod, which she allegedly used to strike the victim in the right arm.
The victim was transported to a local hospital and treated for pain and a laceration on her right hand.
Dawson was arrested without incident and charged with second-degree assault and fourth-degree possession of a dangerous weapon. Her arraignment is scheduled for Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
