Two major concerts were held at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center and there was a big difference in the number of arrests. At last night’s Train concert there were no arrests nor alcohol violations issued by the Genesee County Sheriff’s Department. The same can not be said for Friday’s Brad Paisley Concert. On Friday, 73 arrests were made, 66 for underage drinking. Of the 73 only two are from Genesee County. Both 17 year old Magnum Kibler of Randall Road in LeRoy and 17 year old Gabrierlle Kwaiatek of Alleghany Road in Darien were charged with under age possession of alcohol. The person to come the farthest to get arrested was from Alexandria Ohio.
Of the non-alcohol arrests, the most serious was the arrest of 19 year old Travis Shedraky of Dunville Ontario. He was arrested for allegedly causing a disturbance by pushing a Security Guard. He’s in jail in lieu of 250 dollars bail.
A car found in an area of thick brush off North Road in LeRoy has led to the arrest of a Batavia man. 29 year old Nicholas Klippel of Walden Creek in Batavia has been charged with DWI, leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident, Consumption of Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle and with failure to keep right. Deputies say the vehicle appeared to have failed to negotiate a curve and left the south shoulder of the roadway. Registration records traced the vehicle to Klippel and he was found a short time later in the parking lot of his residence by Batavia Police.
19 year old Katie Winnie of Exchange Street in Attica has been charged with Petit Larceny and unlawful possession of marijuana. Winnie was arrested for shoplifting about 188 dollars worth of merchandise from the Batavia Wal-Mart. She was also found to have marijuana on her possession at the time of her arrest. In addition 21 year old Tate Westermeier of Church Road in Darien Center has been charged with petit larceny in the same incident.
19 year old Arginia Jones of Whitney Place in Buffalo has been charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and for failing to stop at a stop sign. The arrest was made when she was observed failing to stop on Alleghany Road in the town of Darien.
Thousands of people packed Niagara Square on Saturday for the first day of the Taste of Buffalo. The largest two-day food festival in the country is celebrating 30 years!
With ideal weather conditions, Delaware Avenue and Niagara Square filled up quickly with Western New Yorkers and out-of-town visitors anxious to try out some of Buffalo's best food.
Restaurants offer select menu items at small enough portion sizes that people can save enough room in their tummies to try several.
