Charges against three young adults accused of brawling with police last month in downtown Buffalo continue to make their way through Buffalo City Court, authorities said Thursday.

Joseph M. Speyer, 26, and Andrew J. Speyer, 21, both of Depew, and Samantha J. Wozniak, 20, of Lancaster, were accused of fighting with Officers Joseph R. Hassett and Joseph Wendel on the first block of West Chippewa Street during the early evening of March 16.

Hassett, who was struck by a beer bottle and kicked, required treatment for a hand injury in Erie County Medical Center.

The three were charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct. In addition, Andrew Speyer, who allegedly threw the beer bottle at the officer, was also charged with aggravated harassment and second-degree assault.

Future court appearances are expected to be scheduled, authorities said.
