Break-dancer arrested in Elma while trying to do the wave
Yes, unfortunately, break-dancing is making a comeback. This is one thing you will never hear me brag about. I tried to learn how to break dance and I stunk. I couldn't even do the wave, the simplest of all breakdancing moves. This kid in Cheektowaga broke the first rule of break-dancing. Never travel to a house party without bringing your cardboard box.
Break-dancer charged with ruining hardwood floors
News Staff Reports
A large diamond belt buckle worn by an 18-year-old Cheektowaga man while break-dancing at a party caused $3,000 worth of gouging damage on some hardwood floors -- and left him charged with felony criminal mischief.
Erie County sheriff's deputies said Ryan T. Baczkiewicz, of Toelsin Road, went to a house party in the Town of Elma while intoxicated and caused the damage during repeated attempts at break-dancing.
The party was hosted by the homeowner's daughters. The parent returned home from vacation to find the damage, leading sheriff's deputies to investigate the crime.
Deputy Daryl DeMari of the Elma substation, assisted by Cheektowaga police, arrested Baczkiewicz at his home Sunday evening. He's charged with criminal mischief and criminal trespass, a misdemeanor, according to police reports.
