Fishing flap near Burt Dam leads to harassment arrest

NEWFANE – An argument over a fishing spot near the Burt Dam left one man with a cut over his eye and another under arrest early Sunday.

Sheriff’s deputies said they charged Mark D. Probst, 24, of Ridgewood Drive, Snyder, with harassment in connection with the 7:50 a.m. incident. A 52-year-old Ohio man suffered a facial injury when he was punched in the face by Probst, police said. Probst told deputies the man had encroached upon his fishing spot, leading to an argument in which he struck the victim.
