A Granville man was arrested in Whitehall last week after he violated an order of protection.
Harold J. Ricketts Sr., 40, of West Main Street, was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, and second-degree harassment, a violation.
Ricketts allegedly physically harassed a person during a domestic dispute at a Chaplin Alley residence. The victim had an order of protection against Ricketts.
He was arraigned in Whitehall Village Court and released to appear in court at a later date.
The case was handled by Whitehall Police Chief Matt Dickinson and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department.
