The 47-year-old man was processed at the scene and released on his own recognizance. He was scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 2.

The 41-year-old man allegedly refused to provide police with any information, which led to police transporting him to Yorktown police headquarters for processing. He was released and scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 11.

Teen Shouts Obscenities at Police

On Sept. 1, Yorktown police received a call from Phoenix Academy reporting an altercation in progress between several female residents.

When police arrived to the scene and attempted to interview possible witnesses, a 17-year-old Queens woman allegedly began to repeatedly shout obscenities and swing her arms about, impeding the officers' attempts to conduct an investigation, police said.

As a result, the teen, whose name police did not release due to her eligibility for youthful offender status, was placed under arrest and processed at police headquarters. She was charged with obstructing government administration, a misdemeanor.

The defendant was scheduled to appear in Yorktown Town Court on Oct. 2 and was then released to Phoenix Academy personnel.

A truly heinous crime! We are on a fast track toward a fascist state when a man cannot walk in public and enjoy a beer.
