A Darien woman is under arrest for shooting her husband in the knee.
51-year-old Patricia Hardesty is locked up with no bail following the domestic incident. According to State Police, Hardesty had been arguing with her husband, 54-year-old Robert Hardesty, all weekend long.
Yesterday, she’d apparently had enough.
Patricia went into the house, grabbed a .22-caliber rifle, and shot at Robert several times as he was grilling on the patio. One bullet caught him in the left knee.
Robert is now in satisfactory condition at ECMC. Patricia is at the Genesee County Jail with no bail, charged with Felony Assault and Criminal Use of a Firearm.
