Around 11 p.m. on June 1, the deputies from the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office repsonded to a noise complaint at 791 Van Ostrand Road in the Town of Lansing. Deputies were called after nearby residents reported their neighbor had threatened them after they went over and asked him to turn the music down. Deputies found the music to be too loud and spoke with the resident, Ronald M. Georgia, age 61, in an attempt to keep the peace.
In doing so, though, the responding deputy was physically threatened and postured by Georgia. When the deputy attempted to detain him, Georgia resisted the arrest. He was subsequently charged with obstructing governmental administration in the second degree and resisting arrest, both of which are Class A misdemeanors. He was released on appearance tickets to return to the Town of Lansing Court on June 20. He was later transported to Cayuga Medical Center due to his intoxication level.
