GOUVERNEUR -- A late night New Year's Eve celebration at the American Legion in Gouverneur went bad when three members of a family who were asked to leave refused and got into a fight with state police when they arrived, according to troopers.

The initial state police report on New Year’s Day listed Timothy A. Travis, 28, and Alan J. Travis, 49, both of Gouverneur, as charged with one count each of the misdemeanor of resisting arrest and two counts each of trespass and disorderly conduct.

Today Chelsea Travis, 23, has been added to the list of offenders, the third member of the family allegedly involved. She has been charged with trespass and disorderly conduct.

Troopers said they got the call at 2:20 a.m. New Year’s morning that some people at the American Legion on East Main Street were asked to leave but were refusing to do so.

When the troopers arrived a few minutes later, state police say, the three began fighting with them.

Chelsea Travis was issued appearance tickets and was released.

Her father and brother were arraigned in Town of Gouverneur Court and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond.

All the Travises are scheduled to be in court on Jan. 16 at 3 p.m.
