Adam Bootes
BURT — A Lockport-Olcott Road man was arrested after Niagara County Sheriff's deputies responded to a complaint of an open burn.

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies responded to 1663 Lockport-Olcott Road around 4:41 p.m. Sunday where they found Adam Bootes standing in the back yard of the residence near an open burn, according to the arrest report. When patrol approached Bootes, he immediately became confrontational.

Patrol advised him that he would have to extinguish the fire due to a complaint from a neighbor. The open fire burn consisted of tree branches, leaves and other garden debris, which is in violation of the Newfane Town ordinance.

Although patrol intended on issuing a warning for the open burn, Bootes swore at patrol, telling them to get off his property and that they had "no right to walk into my back yard." When patrol asked for Bootes' pertinent information, but he refused to give his name, instead swearing at patrol again.

Bootes was then taken into custody and charged with obstructing governmental administration and the open burn violation. He was held in Niagara County Jail on $500 bail and is slated to appear in Newfane Town Court on Tuesday.
