Former Hamburg police captain arraigned on two additional violations


HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) — The former captain of the Hamburg Police Department appeared in court on Tuesday morning.

Authorities arrested Christopher Monaco in May following a domestic disturbance at his home.

According to a report, police received a 911 call from his home. When they called back, his wife answered. She said it was a misdial and that everything was okay.

Officers still responded to the scene, and that’s when they say Monaco fought with officers outside.

Monaco was charged with obstructing governmental administration. On Tuesday, he was arraigned on two additional violations, accusing him of harassing fellow officers.
