Branchport man charged with endangering the welfare of a child

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a 32-year-old following an incident on October 1st.

Deputies arrested Jeramiah Mendez, 32, of Branchport for endangering the welfare of a child. They say they were called to a ‘family trouble’ incident in the village of Naples around 5:45 p.m.

That’s when authorities learned that Mendez forcefully pushed a family member that was holding a one-year-old child.

The child wasn’t hurt in the incident. However, Mendez was transported to the Ontario County Jail for arraignment on the endangerment charge.
