A 42-year-old man who allegedly reported a gang-style assault during a graduation party in July has been arrested by Le Roy PD on a variety of charges, including making a false report.
Mark E. Cheeseman, of Le Roy, reportedly filed a report with police alleging a fight on Elm Street that he said left him severely injured.
He is said to have signed two sworn depositions alleging the fight and attack.
It turns out, according to investigators, that Cheeseman was the alleged instigator of any confrontation that night.
Cheeseman allegedly grabbed the buttocks of a woman, which led to a fight with other guests at the party.
The altercation reportedly spilled out of the residence and down Elm Street.
Cheeseman allegedly trespassed on another property and would not leave after being told to do so. He allegedly pushed another woman at that location.
Det. John Condidorio drove to Buffalo Criminal Court today and picked up Cheeseman on a warrant.
The charges against Cheeseman include forcible touching, two counts of filing a false written instrument, second-degree harassmen, and trespass.
He was arraigned and jailed on $1,500 bail.
No other arrests are expected in the case.
