  • DANSVILLE— Police have arrested a Dansville man after an alleged domestic violence incident led to a sheriff's department deputy getting treatment at a hospital.
    Adam G. Webster, 18, was charged Thursday with second-degree assault, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of alcohol.
    According to the Livingston County Sheriff's Office, Webster assaulted a female in the Village of Dansville just before 1:20 a.m.
    The victim, who was known to Webster, was treated at Noyes Hospital.
    When police approached Webster, he allegedly resisted arrest and sliced a deputy's finger.
    "One deputy did suffer a laceration to his finger," said Investigator Matt Burgess. "He was treated at Noyes and released."
    After an investigation into the original assault, the Dansville Police Department subsequently charged him with second-degree burglary, third-degree assault and petit larceny.
    Webster was arraigned by Justice Joshua Weidman in the Dansville Village Court and remanded to the Livingston County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 property bond.
    Investigating at the scene was Capt. Norm Zeh, Sgt. James Merrick, Inv. Dan Rittenhouse, deputy Michael Wade, deputy Kevin Geer and deputy Martin Herkimer. Also assisting was Dansville Police Chief Charles Perkins, officer Sheena Schafer and officer Bryan Chapman.
