Man charged with damaging statue; sister pulls fire alarm at police station


Now headless horse sat in front of a tavern on Main Street

SAUGERTIES – A man with addresses in Poughkeepsie and Greenville, North Carolina, is spending time in the Ulster County Jail following his arrest on charges of criminal mischief and obstructing governmental administration.
Saugerties Police said Judah Signor, 28, was intoxicated early Monday morning and destroyed the Gallopin Around Saugerties Horse #11 “Endor”, a small sculpture in front of the Dutch Tavern on Main Street.  When police arrived, he was seen throwing the horse’s head into traffic.
Signor ran off when he saw officers, but was taken into custody following a brief foot pursuit.  While being charged at the police station, he became combative with officers refusing to provide his identification information, kicking items in the booking room and kicking a police officer.
Singor is in the county jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
Meanwhile, Signor’s sister, Deborah Signor, 26, of Brooklyn, was arrested at the police headquarters when she came to meet her brother. The woman became impatient with the police dispatcher demanding answers to her questions and became belligerent toward communications personnel.  Deborah Signor then went over to a fire alarm pull station in the lobby and pulled it.
The Saugerties Fire Department responded to the false alarm resulting in police charging Deborah with falsely reporting an incident as a felony.  She was sent to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond.
