2 area men
arrested in fight
Two men were arrested as the result of a fight on Dietz Street near the Wall Street parking lot early Tuesday, city police said.
Cory J. Hunter, 20, of Oneonta, and Nicholas P. Paliwodzinski, 22, of Ballston Lake, were charged at 4:18 a.m. Tuesday with second-degree riot and third-degree assault, both misdemeanors, police said. Three other men fled the scene.
The defendants and the three other males are accused of attacking two men who were walking along the street, police said, and one alleged victim went to the hospital for treatment of injuries to his face.
Hunter had a blood alcohol content of .18 percent and Paliwodzinski’s BAC was .24 percent, police said.
The defendants were arraigned in Oneonta City Court on Tuesday morning and released on $500 bail each, pending re-appearance in court at a later date.
