Police say no one was hurt, but a Geneva man had to be physical restrained and removed from Seneca Falls Town Court after a violent outburst.
The Seneca Falls Police Department reports that on Monday around 7:58 p.m. Larry Mallard, 57, of Geneva was appearing for a traffic ticket – when he became irate and refused to comply with orders given by the judge.
Police were ordered to remove him from court, and in the process – became physically confrontational. He pushed officers and failed to comply with the orders given.
He was taken into custody without injuries being sustained to the officers. However, Mallard was charged with obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. He was also charged with two counts of harassment and disorderly conduct.
Additionally, the Judge held Mallard in contempt of court ordering him to be remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility with no bail for a minimum of five days.
Police say he will also be arraigned at the central arraignment court for the new charges.
Mallard will be due back in the Town of Seneca Falls Court to answer the new charges at a later date.
