Hamburg, NY (WBEN) More charges have been filed against a retired Hamburg Police captain in connection with a domestic incident.

Erie County DA John Flynn says 42 year old Christopher Monaco was arraigned before Hamburg Town Justice Gerald P. Gorman on two counts of second degree harassment.

The harassment counts allege that Monaco subjected two Town of Hamburg police officers to physical contact while the officers were performing their lawful duties in response to a domestic disturbance at the defendant’s home on May 11th.

Prosecutors say police officers responded to Monaco's home on Bender Court after receiving a 911 hang up call. Upon their arrival, Flynn says Monaco tried to prevent the officers from conducting their investigation by ordering the victim, his wife, to not provide a statement.

Monaco was arraigned before Justice Gorman on one count of Obstructing Governmental Administration in the Second Degree, a Class “A” misdemeanor, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
