Jury deliberations will continue Friday in the case against Jeffrey L. Calhoun, the Lockport man charged with two hate crimes after a traffic accident in North Buffalo in July.
Calhoun, 63, has been accused of using a racial slur and brandishing a pistol during a physical confrontation with a black woman following a minor accident on Colvin Avenue on July 19, 2019.
Calhoun, who is white, was indicted on charges of unlawful imprisonment and menacing – both as hate crimes – as well as misdemeanor assault and impersonating a police officer.
Since they began deliberating at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, jurors have asked to review the testimony of two witnesses. They also asked to review the recording of a witness’ 911 call, cellphone video taken by another witness and the victim’s medical records.
