Le Roy man, Batavia teen in hot water over discharged gun.

LE ROY – A Le Roy man and a Batavia teenager have been charged in connection with a dispute involving a gun, Genesee County Sheriff’s officials said.

Steven A. Myers, 46, of Asbury Road, has been charged with third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree menacing. Brandon N. Benz, 17, of Clinton Street, Batavia, is charged with second-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The charges stem from a Nov. 10 incident on Asbury Road, where deputies and state troopers responded to a report of a gun discharged during a dispute. Investigators provided no further information.

Benz was arraigned in Le Roy Town Court. Myers was issued appearance tickets for the same court.
