Buffalo man accused of violating order of protection

Orchard Park police arrested a Buffalo man after finding that he was with a woman who had an order of protection against him, police reported Sunday.

The incident started Friday night when a patrol officer stopped a vehicle with a loud muffler and brake light not functioning on Abbott Road.

The operator told the officer he did not have his driver’s license on him and provided a name and date of birth that the officer was unable to locate in the state Department of Motor Vehicles commuter system. The driver was repeatedly questioned as to his identity and he inisted that he was the person whose identity he was providing, police said.

Once his female passenger was separated from him, the officer was able to identify the man as Christopher J. Reimer, 44, of Buffalo, police said.

During the course of the investigation, Reimer was found to be in violation of an order of protection barring him from having contact with his female pasenger, police said. He also had a suspended driver’s license with four suspensions on it, police said.

Reimer was taken into custody and transported to the Orchard Park Police Department.

He was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, false personsation, second degree criminal contempt, and numerous vehicle and traffic offenses.

He was arraigned Saturday before Justice Lynn Keane who sent him to the Erie County Holding Center on $5,000 bail.
