Man Charged for Having Billy Club

A Bemus Point man is facing charges for having a billy club in his car.

State police say they pulled 19-year-old Michael Babbage over on Monday for not wearing a seat belt, and smelled marijuana. During a search of the vehicle troopers found the two-foot-long billy club.

Babbage was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and issued a court appearance ticket. Troopers did not charge him with marijuana possession because they say the amount he had was not a violation of the law.
