NEWFANE — A 47-year-old man from Wardsboro was arrested following an incident that took place in Newfane last month.

On August 23, authorities say they were notified of a crime through its anonymous tip line on South Wardsboro Road.

Police allege that on that day, there was a dispute between Justin Wimer and another individual that involved Wimer shooting from a roadway.

There were no reported injuries from this.

Yesterday, Wimer agreed to meet with troopers at the Dover Police Department and was arrested for first-degree aggravated domestic assault, aggravated disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment, and shooting from a roadway.

He was transported to the Westminster barracks for processing and lodged at Southern State Correctional Facility.
