BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Batavia man is facing felony charges after an alleged roadside domestic incident, involving someone who had an order of protection against him. The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office reports 39-year-old Daniel C. Dilaura was drunk when he held his wife against her will.
The sheriff’s office says Dilaura was having an argument with the victim while driving on State Route 39. Dilaura allegedly held her against her will, pulled the vehicle to the side of the roadway and took the victim’s phone away while she was trying to call 911. She was eventually able to get the phone and call 911.
Police arrived on the scene and Dilaura got out of the car and ran from the scene. An officer apprehended him after a brief struggle. He was arrested, his vehicle was towed from the scene and the victim was released to a family member.
Dilaura is charged with felony criminal contempt, felony DWI and unlawful imprisonment among other charges. He was taken to Wyoming County Jail without bail and will be in court in November.
