POTSDAM - A Potsdam man was jailed after Potsdam police say they were called to a downtown business to remove an unwanted patron who was engaged in tumultuous behavior with staff.

Cotey J. FeFee, 21, was charged with two-counts of obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and unlawful possession of marijuana, officers said.

Police said when they arrived they successfully separated FeFee from the staff and asked FeFee to show identification.

FeFee allegedly refused and officers attempted to place him under arrest.

Police said he resisted arrest but was eventually taken into custody where a small amount of marijuana was discovered on him.

At the police station, FeFee continued to obstruct processing, resulting in his second charge, officers said.

FeFee was arraigned in Potsdam Village Court and refused to cooperate with court arraignment proceedings, police said.

Officers said he was sent to St.Lawrence County Correctional Facility on $1,500 bail.
