An East Woburn woman was indicted Monday on charges that she broke a bar glass on another woman's face, causing injuries that could cause her to lose her left eye.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said that Jessica Lucia, 33, of East Woburn, was arraigned on charges of mayhem, assault with a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery on a public employee stemming from a September 30 incident.

Lucia was previously charged in Boston Municipal Court for the alleged attack, which took place near the intersection of Tremont and Bosworth Streets in Boston.

According to the Conley, Lucia allegedly picked a fight with a 27-year-old woman after leaving Beantown Pub at around 2 a.m. The verbal altercation escalated, police said, when Lucia allegedly charged the victim while still holding a pint glass.

It was at that time that a man attempted to restrain Lucia, and she then allegedly swung the glass and struck the woman in the face with it. Conley said in a press release that the shattering glass caused deep scarring to the victim's face and serious injuries to her left eye.

According to prosecutors, clinicians are still unsure whether the woman will ever regain sight in that eye.

Lucia was arrested by Boston Police who were working a detail after she allegedly ran from the scene. According to the report, Lucia called one officer an "(expletive) cracker" and kicked him in the groin.

Police said that while in booking, Lucia was told that the victim could lose her eye, to which she replied "(expletive) her, she lost the fight."

Lucia, represented by attorney Paul Anthony, will be back in court on February 14.

Not saying what she did was right, but there are two sides to every story. I know firsthand how the police/media can twist things and stuff gets taken out of context. Just my 2c.

Yeah, I'm sure kicking the cop in the groin and smashing a glass in the woman's face was taken completely out of context!

Just checking my email and apparently there were several responses such as these civil ones remaining on this forum .. But I did see one vile one written by a female with the same last name as the defendant.... I am very glad that it was removed from this forum. What disgusting gross language. Their family must be very very proud. I can understand sticking up for family as I fiercely would stick up for mine but all I can say is wow, using such obscene gross language speaks volumes of these people.
