EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Lane County judge says a woman who drove her SUV down the aisles of a Springfield supermarket last summer can remain in the community under the supervision of mental health experts rather than go to the Oregon State Hospital.

The Register-Guard (https://is.gd/sIvn0L ) reported Tuesday that mental health professionals testified that Noella Fay should be allowed to live in the community because she is stable. The 43-year-old lives with her husband and 12-year-old son.

The incident at a Safeway supermarket caused nearly $100,000 damage and happened after Fay got into an argument with store managers who would not let her write a large check to purchase gift cards.

Charged with two felonies and four misdemeanors, she was found guilty by reason of insanity in December.
