The Erie County District Attorney’s Office announced this week that an East Aurora man pleaded guilty to a case involving a physical altercation with a state trooper two years ago during a traffic stop.
On April 18, 2020, at 8:52 p.m., on Center Street near Holland Glenwood Road in Colden, a traffic stop took place.
Chaz M. Brzezicki, 33, allegedly stepped out of his vehicle and struck a trooper in the face during the stop, according to authorities.
The trooper hit Brzezicki with a flashlight during the confrontation, which occurred while Brzezicki was in a chokehold. When more police officers came, Brzezicki was brought into the jail.
After passing a trooper on Center, Brzezick was pulled and stopped. Prosecutors claim that when the trooper approached the car, he smelt alcohol and marijuana and spotted a marijuana pipe on Brzezicki’s lap.
According to the District Attorney’s Office, Brzezicki pled guilty to second-degree assault and driving under the influence of alcohol before State Supreme Court Justice Paul Wojtaszek on Monday. On July 7, he will be sentenced.
