Domestic Dispute Lands Man in Jail

A domestic dispute with his girlfriend has landed a Machias man in jail.

46-year-old Lawrence Pope got into the fight with the woman on August 3. When police got to the scene and told him he was going to be arrested for criminal obstruction of breathing and harassment, he told them that he was not going to be arrested, and then resisted while troopers attempted to take him into custody.

In addition to the domestic-related charges, he was also charged with resisting arrest, and was sent to Cattaraugus County Jail on $1,000 cash bail.
