Buffalo, New York – In June, New York State Supreme Court Judge Mark Gristan shouted at Buffalo Police as police tried to investigate a dispute between the judge and his wife, Maria Gristanti, and some neighbors.
Police body-camera video, obtained and published earlier this week by Law 36060, Attracted a lot of media attention. In the video, Maria Gristanti trampled on her neighbors and police officers. An officer dared to tear up his T-shirt and hang it around his waist, trying to drive the officer away from his wife.
