When coffee is life, and you'll do anything to get it. 

We can probably all agree that there are times where we really need our coffee. We're on edge, and short with people. Once we get that sweet nectar, all is well again. Well, this woman allegedly decided to take it one step further and landed herself in some legal hot water.

On Sunday evening around 6PM, Kaitlyn E. Baker, 21, of Saugerties engaged in a verbal dispute with Nicole Hansen, a worker at the drive-thru of the Dunkin Donuts on Route 9W in Saugerties, police said.

Baker disputes aspects of the police press release. Baker said the incident did not take place in a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru and that the incident didn't involve an employee of Dunkin Donuts.

During the dispute Baker allegedly made several threats of physical harm against the complainant. Baker left the scene prior to police being notified of the incident.

Baker was located by investigating officers, and subsequently arrested and charged with harassment in the second-degree. Baker was processed at the Saugerties Police Headquarters.

While being processed, Baker reported to police that she had been threatened with physical harm by Hansen, 24, of Saugerties. Hansen was subsequently arrested and also charged with second degree harassment.

Baker and Hansen were released and issued appearance tickets. They are due back in Saugerties Court later this month to answer to the charge.
