A 16 year old Steuben County teen is facing charges of attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest after he allegedly threw a knife at a State Trooper.
When troopers arrived to the scene of a reported domestic incident Sunday afternoon, Geoffery Burnett refused to drop a knife after he was ordered to do so. Burnett then allegedly threw the knife at a trooper, striking him in the arm. After a brief struggle, the Wayland teen was taken into custody.
Following his arraignment, Burnett was sent to Steuben County Jail in lieu of bail.
