FAYETTE, N.Y. – Two Pennsylvania brothers on an upstate New York wine tour have been charged with beating up a winery owner who tried to eject them for drunkeness.
State police say 28-year-old Thomas Wulff of Lebanon and 27-year-old Michael Wulff of Towanda were charged with felony assault after last weekend's altercation at the Three Brothers Winery in the Finger Lakes town of Fayette, about 35 miles southwest of Syracuse.
Troopers say the brothers were part of a group and were in the winery's tasting room Saturday afternoon when the owner asked them to leave for being too intoxicated and disruptive.
Police say the Wulffs punched and kicked the owner, breaking a bone near his eye. The injured owner's name hasn't been released.
It wasn't known if the brothers had lawyers.
