GLOVERSVILLE- Police said officers arrested a city man Friday for knocking his girlfriend to the pavement and holding her down.
Jason W. Wagoner, 28, of 54 Forest St., was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony; third-degree attempted assault, a misdemeanor; and disorderly conduct.
Police said officers were called to the intersection of Forest Street and Carpenter Street because of a report of a man beating a woman. Upon arrival, police said, officers found Wagoner shouting. Officers advised Wagoner to stop yelling, but he continued to do so, police said. Wagoner was then taken into custody for disorderly conduct, police said.
Police said an investigation found that before the arrival of the officers, Wagoner knocked his girlfriend to the pavement and held her down. Wagoner was previously served an order of protection instructing him to refrain from any criminal activity against his girlfriend, police said.
Wagoner was arraigned in City Court and sent to Fulton County Jail on $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.
