On New Years Day around 7:50 pm deputies were called to a domestic incident that took place in Waterloo.

According to deputies, Robert A. Silbernagel, of the Budget Inn on Waterloo Geneva Road was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, after putting his hands on a 16-year-old child.

A police report released to the media indicates that Silbernagel slammed the 16-year-old child into a wall after putting his hands on the unidentified minor. The entire incident unfolded after a verbal altercation escalated.
