A 44-year-old East Hampton man is facing a felony charge of first-degree criminal contempt for allegedly violating an order of protection.
Police said that on the afternoon of Oct. 21, Jamie R. Villa-Villa, who since Aug. 10 has been under a court order preventing him from contacting a local woman, showed up at her house and shoved her to the ground during a confrontation.
A 14-year-old witnessed the incident and called 911, prompting a second charge of acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17, a misdemeanor.
Police held Mr. Villa-Villa overnight. At his arraignment the next morning, East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky imposed $500 cash bail, which the defendant was able to post. He was to have appeared in court again this morning, represented by Kevin Gilvary, whose office is in Westhampton Beach.
