Elmira Man Charged With Aggravated Assault in Coudersport

EULALIA TWP. – Court records show that Jamel A. Lawson, 33, of Elmira, NY, was charged with Aggravated Assault(F2), 2 counts of Simple Assault(M2), Harassment and Disorderly Conduct Engage in Fighting.

Lawson was arrested and arraigned in District Judge Delores G. Bristol’s courtroom yesterday, October 31 at 11:30 am. He was released on $15,000 unsecured bail.

Although there has been no official news release from police regarding the incident at the Northwood’s Tavern on Saturday night, we believe these charges stem from that altercation.

A Preliminary Hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, November 4 at 3:00 pm.

    “we believe these charges stem from that altercation.”

    That’s some investigative reporting right there.

    Well, I could just put it out there as fact, as most others do… or be honest and let people know it’s not confirmed information.

    Sources tell us this man was arrested in connection with the altercation at the Northwoods.

    Until the police confirm this, I’m going to clarify that the information is not confirmed.
