Three Charged In I-86 Domestic In September

Three individuals involved in a September incident on Interstate 86 have been charged with two being located this week in Buffalo.

New York State Police reported Saturday they responded to a domestic incident on Sept. 16 near Randolph. An investigation revealed that as Frank Felt, 48, of Salamanca was driving Benjamin Finch and Kaitlyn Felt to Jamestown, the passengers both began to strike him, causing him to pull over the vehicle.

Finch and the younger Felt then took the elder to the ground and kicked his vehicle repeatedly, causing damage. Finch and Kaitlyn Felt then fled the scene.

Felt exhibited multiple signs of drug impairment and was placed under arrest after failing several field sobriety tests. Further investigation then revealed that Kaitlyn Felt was the protected party in a stay-away order against Frank Felt.

Frank Felt was processed at Jamestown barracks and charged with DWAI-drugs and second-degree criminal contempt. He was issued traffic tickets and appearance tickets and released. He was scheduled to be in the town of Randolph Court on a later date and was not injured in the altercation.

Attempts to locate Finch and Kaitlyn Felt were unsuccessful until Thursday when Troopers stopped to check on a disabled vehicle on Interstate 190 in Buffalo. Both were placed under arrest, transported to State Police at Fredonia and processed. Finch and Kaitlyn Felt were then arraigned in the town of Randolph Court and were scheduled to be back in the town of Randolph Court next month.
