Police: Clyde man was belligerent, kicked officers during harassment investigation in Seneca Falls

Police report that on Tuesday around 9:52 p.m. they arrested a Clyde man following a harassment complaint that turned violent in Seneca Falls.

Shawn M. Standbrook, 34, of Clyde was charged with two counts of harassment, disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest after kicking two police officers while being taken into custody.

Police say Standbrook was being arrested following a disorderly conduct complaint on Bridge Street. They say Standbrook was harassing patrons at a local business and passed by with an open container.

When police arrived they determined that Standbrook was intoxicated, uncooperative, and belligerent. At that point things became physical, police described the incident as ‘violent’ in a press release.

He was eventually taken into custody and is due in court at a later date.

Chief Stu Peenstra reports that no officers were injured in the altercation. The Waterloo Police Department, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, and New York State Police provided assistance at the scene.
