It was a relatively calm night for Genesee County Sheriff’s
Deputies Friday night at the Def Leppard/Poison Concert at Darien Lake. 5 persons were arrested on various charges. Four persons were arraigned on the charges and jailed in lieu of bail, while a fifth was given an appearance ticket after allegedly shoving a security guard inside the concert venue. None of the persons arrested was from Genesee County. Four were from Seneca County, and one from Erie. Friday night was the first time that attendees were no longer allowed to park elsewhere and walk into the concert. Four of the arrests resulted from enforcement of the new regulation.
The weather yesterday was perfect for the outdoor activities that were held in the area. The high temperature was a very comfortable 71 while the flow was 52 making an average of 61.5 degrees, which is actually about 8 degrees cooler than an average August 18th day in Batavia. It’s expected to be sunny today with a high in the upper 70’s.
Thousands of people attended the Downtown Batavia, Summer in The City, while a very good number or residents and visitors attended the 100th anniversary celebration of Redfield Parkway.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin tomorrow in Genesee
County Court in the trial of the Batavia woman accused of punching a Wal-Mart cashier on Christmas Eve. Jaquetta Simmons, 26, will stand trial on a charge of assault under New York State’s “Granny Law”. The Granny law makes it felony to cause injury to a person over the age of 65 by a person 10 or more years younger. Simmons is accused of punching Wal-Mart cashier Grace Suozzi, 70, last December 24. Suozzi, police said, had asked Simmons to show a receipt for items she was carrying in a bag as she went through Suozzi's check-out line.
