Passenger involved in traffic stop charged with obstructing governmental administration

A passenger in a vehicle that was stopped Saturday by Chautauqua County sheriff's deputies was charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration.

Deputies said that, while conducting a field sobriety test on the driver of the vehicle, the passenger, 58-year-old Mark E. Griswold, of Clymer, got out of the vehicle and confronted the deputies.

After the driver was arrested, Griswold followed the deputies to the Sheriff's Office and tried to enter the facility, deputies said.

Griswold was arrested and charged, then later released with an appearance ticket to appear in Chautauqua Town Court at a later date, according to the Sheriff's Office.
