BATAVIA — A parolee who already had been returned to prison for violating parole faces numerous charges, including allegations that he “had been quarantined and began intentionally coughing” at police officers.
City police were called to 21 Walnut St. Thursday afternoon for a report of a domestic dispute.
An investigation revealed Tyshon L. Taylor, 23, had cracked the windshield of his girlfriend’s car during an argument. A child was in the car at the time, police said.
Taylor was taken into custody and told officers that he had been in quarantine before coughing at the officers.
He was charged with felony aggravated family offense, felony criminal mischief, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing.
Taylor was arraigned via Skype and was committed to Genesee County Jail on a parole violation detainer.
Taylor is on parole for a 2015 robbery conviction.
He was 18 when he and another teenager jumped a person at a Central Avenue house, hitting the victim in the head with weapons and fists and stealing property.
Taylor pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree robbery and was sentenced to three years in prison, with three years of post-release supervision.
He was released early and in May 2018 was arrested and charged with threatening to kill another person.
He was later convicted of violating parole and was returned to prison in December 2018.
He was released Nov. 7 and is on parole until April 13, 2021, according to New York State Department of Corrections.
