Man Charged In Bar Dispute After Dobbs Ferry Festa

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – An Ossining man was arrested after the Dobbs Ferry Festa on Main Street following an altercation at the Celtic Crossing bar.

John Luzon, 38, was arrested around 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, and charged with fourth-degree disorderly conduct, a class A misdemeanor, after employees at the Celtic Crossing called police to report Luzon would not leave the area.

Luzon had contacted police himself earlier in the night to report that a bar patron had punched him in the eye. Luzon then went back to the bar and became unruly, police said.
