Man accused of providing alcohol to minors

A local man was arrested last week for allegedly providing alcohol to a group of underage youths.

Matthew K. Morrison, 21, of Broadway was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, a misdemeanor.

The charge was in connection to a Sept. 9 incident in which police responded to Broadway for a report of two youths causing a disturbance.

Police found the youths to be in possession of alcohol and determined that both consumed alcohol prior to the disturbance. A 17-year-old was arrested in that incident and was also charged with unlawfully dealing with a child.

Following an investigation, police allege that Morrison provided the alcohol to the youths.

He was arraigned in village court and issued a ticket to appear in court at a later date.

The investigation and arrest were handled by Whitehall Police Sgt. Richard LaChapelle.
