Culick: Hatzenbuhler to be charged with disorderly conduct

Amsterdam Police Chief Greg Culick said yesterday that Fourth Ward Alderwoman Diane Hatzenbuhler will be charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, as result of an incident on Saturday morning on Main Street.  Witnesses and one police officer reported that Hatzenbuhler removed a street closure sign in front of the farmers’ market during a heated argument with the market manager.

Culick said that he notified Hatzenbuhler of the violation yesterday evening.

“[Hatzenbuhler] will receive a court summons and will most likely appear on Tuesday to answer a disorderly conduct charge,” said Culick.
