Seneca Falls Town Board member Thomas Ruzicka faces a second charge in connection with an altercation with a fellow Town Board member back in May.
The Finger Lakes Times reports Ruzicka is now charged with 3rd-degree assault, in addition to the original 2nd-degree harrassment charge.
Ruzicka is accused of grabbing David DeLelys by the shirt and yelling at him at a downtown bar, following a contentious Town Board meeting in which Local Law 2 was passed, allowing Seneca Meadows Landfill to remain open.
Ruzicka apparently took offense to comments DeLelys made about Seneca Meadows’s contributions to his election campaign.
Ruzicka is due back in court on October 27th.
