Dale’s Briefs – Monday, October 10th
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell attended yesterday’s Bills game and he didn’t give any definite answers on the future of the team after Ralph Wilson. He said Wilson has put some things in place with the best interest of the team and the community in mind. He says the league will work with him to fulfill his wishes.
More than two dozen fans apparently took the Bills victory celebration a little too far. Police say 25 arrests were made at or near Ralph Wilson Stadium including a 53-year-old West Seneca woman and a 49-year-old Pittsford man arrested on drunk driving charges. In both cases their blood alcohol levels were two to three times over the limit.
The driver of a van that struck an apartment building on Grand Island said his foot slipped. Nobody was hurt. I’m pretty sure that’s the 13th time in 24 days that’s happened.
9-year old Kali Reynolds finally was able to play football with her KAT football team in Tonawanda, but her team lost. A judge last week ordered the league to allow her to play despite a league rule that didn’t allow girls to play.
A West Seneca woman is being held at the Erie County Holding Center after a fatal hit and run on Seneca Street early Saturday morning. 29-year old Lori Maciejewski is accused of running down 18-year old Ryan Purcell as he walked home from his girlfriend’s house. The victim died a short time later at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital.
An Eden woman used her cell phone to call for help after she was thrown from a horse while riding along a trail yesterday. She was Mercy Flighted to ECMC with a possible broken pelvis. It took rescuers about an hour and a half to find her.
A man airlifted out of the Zoar valley gorge around noontime on Saturday has died. Cattaraugus County Sheriffs aren’t sure how he was injured but they think he was kayaking. They’re still investigating.
