Penn Yan man resists arrest, struggles with police after domestic

Penn Yan police report the arrest of a village resident following a domestic incident that happened on Maiden Lane in late January.

John Semans, 25, was arrested for disorderly conduct, obstruction, and resisting arrest after refusing to stop and talk with police while they investigated.


He proceeded to yell and scream at police and was eventually detained. A struggle ensued while police had him in custody, and after several attempts – they eventually identified him.

All of the charges will be answered at a later date in local court.
