Woman charged with criminal mischief at Phila. DA Seth Williams' home

- A woman identified in recent financial disclosure statements as the girlfriend of Philadelphia's district attorney Seth Williams is accused of slashing tires on two security cars parked outside his home last year.

According to the Philadelphia Police Department, two tires on the passenger side of each vehicle were flattened with an unknown object during the day on Nov. 11, 2015. Those cars were a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria and a 2010 Ford Escape.

Stacey Cummings, 47, was charged Sunday with criminal mischief and possession of an instrument of a crime in the incident.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports charging documents indicate she confessed Wednesday to slashing the tires. She told investigators she cut the tires because she received "very upsetting" information and "reacted poorly."

It's unclear what their relationship is at this point. FOX 29’s Steve Keeley reports they were together in 2012 and 2014, when she gave him gifts.

Cummings and her lawyer didn't return calls for comment from the newspaper. A spokesman for the district attorney's office also didn't return a message from the newspaper.

The case is being handled by the Delaware County District Attorney's office.
