You might say it was a bad day for Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Pagnotti.

On Saturday (5/28) at approximately 9 a.m. State Police out of Lyons along with Sheriff’s Sergeant Joe Ayotte and Officer Pagnotti responded to a domestic complaint.

According to police, Jermaine Harrison, age 28, of 14 Franklin Street, Apt. 2 in Lyons got into a dispute with Priscilla Weems.

Upon police arrival, Harrison, who had an outstanding warrant from the NYSP, fled on foot. Harrison charged into Deputy Pagnotti who was attempting to take him into custody. Harrison was taken into custody shortly after brief foot pursuit. Pagnotti suffered a pulled arm tendon during the incident and along with injured Sergeant Ayotte went to the hospital for treatment. Officer Pagnotti received a cast on his arm and was released.

Harrison was charged with Criminal Obstruction of Breathing, Criminal Mischief in the 1st Degree, Obstruction of Governmental Administration, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Contempt in the 1st Degree, Harassment in the 2nd Degree, Aggravated Harassment in the 2nd Degree and Aggravated Family Offense and Assault 2nd on a Police Officer. He was arraigned and remanded to jail on $25,000 cash/$50,000 bond.

Officer Pignotti left the hospital, continuing on his shift, only to respond to a report of State Police out of Williamson stopping a vehicle on Route 88 in the Town of Arcadia for Speeding at 10:40 a.m., belonging to Robert E. Hampton (aka Goldfinger), age 66, of Sodus.

Police discovered that Hampton, who has an extensive police record for drugs, was in possession of crack cocaine, marijuana and the prescription pills gabapentin.

Pagnotti assisted in the vehicle stop and then became involved in a physical altercation with Hampton. He attempted to flee on foot and was attempting to consume the narcotics he had on his person. Pagnotti was struck by Hampton during the arrest suffering injuries to the face and arms, breaking his other arm.

Back to the hospital, this time receiving a cast on his left arm for his efforts

Hampton was charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Non-Original Container, Resisting Arrest, Assault 2nd on a Police Officer, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd Degree Unlawful Possession of Marijuana and Speeding. Due to his criminal history, he was remanded to jail on No Bail.

On Wednesday (6/1), Harrison’s girlfriend, Priscilla Weems, age 29, of 776 Route 14 in Lyons was arrested after she refused to appear in Court on a pre-trail hearing on Harrison’s arrest. She was charged with Criminal Contempt in the 2nd Degree, arraigned and remanded to jail on $500 cash/$1000 bond.
