HANOVER - On Wednesday, Scott Schieder, 47, of Losson Road in Cheektowaga was charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment, three counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and two counts of second-degree harassment.
On July 6, troopers from Collins participating in an underage drinking check in Sunset Bay were notified of a domestic dispute occurring on a boat. Numerous bystanders called 911 after hearing a female calling for help from a boat offshore. Troopers and the Chautauqua County Sheriff's deputies located the boat and watched as it went across the bay into Snows Marina in the Erie County.
Reportedly the dispute started while Schieder and the female victim were in a bar at Sunset Bay. The dispute continued as they left the bar and got into a boat owned by Schieder. While on the boat, he began to push her around the boat and covered her mouth numerous times to prevent her calling for help, after he had thrown her cell phone into the lake. Before the officers could get to the dock at Snows Marina, Schieder and the victim got off the boat and went to a cottage. Reportedly, Schieder pushed the victim around, ripping her clothes in the process. The victim was finally able to leave and meet troopers after calling a family member.
Troopers were not able to locate Schieder and had arrest warrants issued for him.
On Wednesday, he turned himself into the Town of Hanover Court and was picked up by troopers. He is due in the Towns of Hanover and Brant Courts later this month. Erie County Sheriff's Depart-ment and the Seneca Nation of Indians Marshals assisted with the case.
