He was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to reappear Wednesday in Louisville Town Court.

Casey J. Lamotte, 17, of 1410 County Route 36, Louisville, she was at the residence with her boyfriend and his family at approximately 4:30 p.m. Thursday when he father knocked on the door and came into the residence after being invited in by her boyfriend’s mother, Vicky Martin.

“My father asked me what was going on. I asked him what he was talking about. He asked me about the bedroom door at his house. I told him Chad and Ricky had gotten into as dispute, and Ricky had punched it,” Ms. Lamotte said in her statement to troopers.

She said her father continued to grill her about the incident as she was holding her daughter.

Richard A. Martin said his girlfriend’s father had been drinking and kept swearing while he was yelling at Ms. Lamotte in the presence of their one-year-old daughter. “I told Mike that he needed to stop swearing because my daughter was in the room,” he said in his statement to police.

He told troopers Lamotte responded by swearing at him and suggesting he should step outside with him if he wanted to try to stop him from swearing. Richard Martin said after Lamotte attempted to start a fight with him he told Lamotte he needed to leave the residence and his girlfriend’s father rejected that request as well.

Lamotte then shoved Allen J. Martin, 19, with both hands after he intervened and stepped in front of his brother and mother, who were involved in the discussion with Lamotte, and attempted to guide him out of the residence. “My mom was standing in front of Mike, and Mike was yelling at Casey, who was holding her baby in her arms,” he said of the scene he had seen when he first walked into the living room from another portion of the residence.

He said his mother, eventually pushed Lamotte outside the residence. “Mike stood outside for a couple of minutes yelling at us and trying to get Ricky and I to come outside and fight with him. Ricky and I stayed inside, and Mike finally left,” he noted in his statement.

Troopers also alleged Lamotte had shoved Vicky L. Martin, 45, after she had asked him to leave her home, and Richard Martin during the dispute.
