Three Genesee County residents allegedly involved in domestic incidents yesterday are facing charges.
The Sheriff’s Office has charged 30-year-old Michael Antonucci of Alexander Road, Alexander, with menacing and harassment for allegedly pushing a woman against a refrigerator and throwing a glass bowl and plate in her direction.
Antonucci was released on his own recognizance and an order of protection was issued.
Two other Batavia men are charged with harassment and were remanded to county jail for their alleged involvement in domestic incidents.
City of Batavia Police says 31-year-old John Taggert of North Lyon Street allegedly shoved a family member against a wall. Bail was set at 15-hundred dollars.
Also, 28-year-old Michael Titus of South Main Street is accused of choking and punching the victim. He is also charged with strangulation and was remanded to county jail without bail pending his next court appearance.
A LeRoy woman who Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies and City of Batavia Police Officers were attempting to arrest for bench warrants on five charges was additionally charged with resisting arrest.
Samantha Williams, 32, was arrested in the lobby of the Department of Social Services and had existing bench warrants for robbery, grand larceny, criminal mischief and petit larceny. Williams allegedly refused to comply with officers and kicked and spit at them.
The Sheriff’s Office says she was incarcerated on the warrant with bail set at $10,000 and will answer to the resisting arrest charge at a later date.
