MASSENA - A Massena man has been ordered to pay $200 in fines and surcharges after he admitted he had reacted in an aggressive manner toward a police officer investigating a domestic dispute.

Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson fined Marcus J. Sherwood, 21, of 46 Park Ave., Massena, $75 and a $125 surcharge for a disorderly conduct conviction. He had been charged with approaching a village police sergeant in a tumultuous and aggressive manner on Sept. 30 when the police officer was investigating a domestic dispute complaint.

Sherwood reportedly consumed a half bottle of vodka and then became embroiled in an argument with his sister and her boyfriend. He also was swearing, threw noodles and was aggressive in his interactions with his mother and law enforcement personnel.

In other recent court action before Judge Gustafson:

■ Elaine M. Lavalley, 56, of 157 County Route 43, Massena, was granted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal with a stipulation she abide by a no harassment order of protection.

She had been charged with second-degree harassment after she reportedly made an unknown number of phone calls to Robert F. Lavalley on July 25 after he had told her not to call him anymore.

■ Robert F. Lavalley, 23, of 124 Andrews St., Apt. 2, Massena, was ordered to pay a $205 surcharge and was placed under a one-year conditional discharge with a stipulation he perform 20 hours of community service for an attempted petit larceny conviction.

He had been charged with shoplifting $30.43 worth of merchandise, including Combos and DVDs, from the Massena Rite Aid store on April 29.

■ Steven P. Bero of 560 County Route 37, Massena, was fined $25 for an open container violation. He possessed and consumed a beer while walking in the municipal parking lot in front of the police station at 11:52 p.m. Sept. 25.

■ Craig M. Tassie, 34, of 254 Center St., Massena, was ordered to pay a $100 fine and make restitution of $32.95 for a petit larceny conviction. He was also placed under a one-year conditional discharge conviction. He had been charged with removing two DVDs from their packages on Oct. 28, 2010 at the Massena Walmart and then walking past the last point of sale without paying for those items.

■ Lisa M. Barclay, 49, of 234 Center St., Apt. 2, Massena, was granted an adjournment in contemplation with a stipulation she perform 10 hours of community service.

She had been charged with disorderly conduct at 5:15 a.m. March 23 on Center Street. Police said an allegedly intoxicated Barclay refused to exit her estranged husband’s vehicle when he was dropping her off at her residence. Police were called to the complaint, and Ms. Barclay allegedly continued to refuse to exit the vehicle and to comply with requests to stop shouting obscenities.

■ Trent P. McDonald, 20, of 73 Beach St., Massena, was granted a six-month adjournment in contemplation of dismissal with a stipulation he commit no further offenses and attend and complete an anger management course.

McDonald had been charged with second-degree harassment following an incident on May 10 when he allegedly grabbed his 18-year-old stepson, Anthony Garcia by the hair and shoved him onto the floor.
