Police said a Beverly woman apparently frustrated by a construction crew using a jackhammer in the street outside her home vented her anger by tossing a beer bottle at an officer working a detail. The officer heard the woman yell ‘‘shut up’’ at about 8:25 a.m. on Monday and saw a plastic bottle land near him. Police told The Salem News that when the officer suggested she close her window, she instead tossed a glass bottle that forced the officer to jump out of the way to avoid being struck. Authorities said Clover Valasunas, 37, was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct.
