ARREST MADE IN RACEWAY INCIDENT

An Arcade man was arrested Saturday night after he apparently got mad at a flagman at Freedom Raceway, entered the track area and punched a track owner who tried to stop him, the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Department said Sunday.

Steven J. Smith, 42, of Curriers Road, Arcade, was charged with harassment after the 9:40 p.m. incident at the track on Bixby Hill Road.

Sheriff's deputies patrolling the raceway parking lot apprehended Smith after he punched a Castile man in the mouth and pushed him to the ground.

Smith was issued a ticket to appear in Freedom Town Court and was released on his own recognizance.
