ORIGINAL:

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio says she was assaulted Saturday night at the Rochester bowling alley Radio Social by a woman who, she says, grabbed her roughly while asking if she was Judge Astacio.

Rochester police confirmed there was an incident involving a drunk person pushing patrons at Radio Social Saturday around 9 pm.

They say they arrested the woman for Harassment, which is similar to a traffic ticket.

Saying it was a minor incident, RPD is not releasing the names of the person arrested or the victim, but they did say the person arrested was not Astacio.

Astacio told News 8 in a statement, “I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the staff of Radio Social for immediately interceding and attempting to remedy the situation in spite of how busy they always are on a Saturday night.”

Astacio is currently on probation for a missed alcohol test and hearing in May.

She had been convicted of a DWI last summer.
