LAFAYETTE, La. (NBC33) -

A 78-year-old woman was arrested for disturbing the peace after she yelled and cursed at her neighbor during an argument.

According to the arrest report, the incident happened on Saturday. The Lafayette Police Department responded to a home on Elizabeth Street and spoke to the victim.

"The suspect [Hellen Burley] came to his residence and began to curse and yell at him," the report noted. "The victim advised that he got his cell phone and began to record the suspect yelling and cursing at him."

The officer watched the video and believed there was enough probable cause to arrest the 4-foot-10-inch elderly woman.

Burley has a prior arrest for a violation of the city's leash law and interfering with the duties of an animal control officer.
