The Canandaigua Police Department reports the arrest of a Naples man following an investigation into a disturbance at a Lakeshore Drive business.

Burgess then approached a Canandaigua Police Officer and attempted to punch him in an unprovoked attack.

Burgess was subsequently arrested and issued an appearance ticket.
