A domestic dispute in the Town of Freetown Thursday has lead to the arrest of five people.
Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home on Maricle Road in the Town of Freetown Thursday for a dispute. When officers arrived, four people were “actively fighting” in the driveway of the residence, the sheriff’s office said.
The four people arrested, including 17 year old Michael Maricle, 48-year-old Ronald Maricle, 45-year-old Brian Maricle, and 18-year-old Nelson Maricle. All four were charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, for fighting in front of three children at the residence.
Michael, Brian and Nelson Maricle were also charged with second-degree harassment. Ronald Maricle was charged with third-degree menacing, a misdemeanor, for swinging a fire poker during the incident.
21-year-old Lori Maricle was reportedly not involved in the fight but was arrested on a criminal mischief charge for damaging several items within the home.
Lori and Brian Maricle reside at a home on Texas Valley Road in Freetown, while the other three family members reside at the home on Maricle Road, according to the sheriff’s office.
No one was injured in the altercation, deputies said. The sheriff’s office did not say how or why the fight began.
The five family members were arraigned in Town of Freetown Court and released, with the exception of Nelson Maricle, who was remanded to the Cortland County Jail on $500 cash bail.
They are scheduled to return to court Jan. 27.
