TOWN OF POUGHKEEPSIE – A Town of Poughkeepsie man was arrested on a charge of criminal contempt after he violated a court order of protection keeping him away from his ex-girlfriend.

Town police were called to the woman’s home late on the afternoon of Monday, December 31 for a report of Joseph Tippa, 43, being there in violation of the order of protection. The woman told police he was the subject of several charges from a previous domestic incident that had occurred the day before.

Tippa had fled prior to the arrival of police, but he was located at a local hospital four hours later. He was taken into custody and charged in the two incidents with the felonies of two counts each of criminal contempt and aggravated family offense, and misdemeanors of criminal mischief, assault and obstructing governmental administration.

During the booking procedures, Tippa refused to be photographed or fingerprinted.

He was sent to the Dutchess County Jail without bail pending a future court appearance.
