Man faces DWI, tax fraud charges

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — After Wegman was transported to the Town of Newfane Court for arraignment, he became increasingly hostile with patrol and yelled several profanities, stating that he would not get out of the car to speak with the judge. A deputy reported that Wegman "was being so uncooperative that the judge agreed to perform a parking lot arraignment in which Wegman would stay in the back of the patrol car, and the judge would come outside for the hearing."

The judge came outside to speak with Wegman, who told the judge that his right handcuff was on too tight. A deputy slipped a finger in between Wegman's wrist and the cuff to show the judge they werent too tight, but Wegman quickly rotated his body, nearly causing the deputy's finger to hyperextend. According to the report, this action was captured on video.

Wegman eventually agreed to go inside the courtroom for arraignment. He is charged with driving on the shoulder, driver's view obstructed, open container, operating a motor vehicle without an interlock device, and felony aggravated unlicensed operation in the first degree. He also faces a felony DWI charge, due to three prior misdemeanor convictions out of Monroe County.

Wegman was remanded to the custody of the Niagara county jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
