MAYVILLE, NY (WNY News Now) – A 46-year-old Jamestown man incarcerated at Chautauqua County’s Jail is accused of damaging the facility’s property. This is not the first time he has faced additional charges while in Sheriff custody.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office says that Winfred Clark, while being escorted within the jail following an appointment, grabbed a television mounted on a wall and threw it to the floor.
