CHEEKTOWAGA – A woman claiming to be the girlfriend of a Depew man charged with Felony Possession of Marijuana called the Cheektowaga Chronicle late Friday morning claiming our reporting on the events surrounding his arrest Wednesday is inaccurate and threatened legal action if the article was not removed.
The Cheektowaga Chronicle reported on Thursday that Brian Kubisty, 36, of Depew, was arrested Wednesday by Cheektowaga Police and faces a slew of charges after the police found two pounds of marijuana in a storage unit across the street from the police station following a hit-and-run crash on Union Road.
The woman, who would not give her name during our phone conversation was concerned about her reputation and claimed the article was inaccurate because the number of vehicles listed was not right, and that her boyfriend only had a few ounces of pot.
The information contained in the police blotter list six vehicles; a Volvo; a Ford pickup; a Jeep; a Subaru; a Honda; and the striking vehicle – what appeared to witnesses as a Gold SUV.
The arrest information for Mr. Kubisty was provided by Cheektowaga Police and confirmed by records filed in Town of Cheektowaga Justice Court. Mr. Kubisty is due back in court on November 17th.
The Cheektowaga Chronicle told the woman caller that we stand by the report.
“The police lied to you, and I can prove it,” the woman said. “We already have a lawyer involved, and if we need to involve him in this also, it’s not gonna be extra money on our end. So, I really need that taken down before you totally destroy my reputation, my reputation, posting inaccurate information regarding my boyfriend.”
During the phone call, she did not deny the fact Mr. Kubisty was found with marijuana and volunteered that it was just a few ounces.
“My name is not in it, but that’s my boyfriend, and we just moved in together, and I have a child and its not even accurate. I’m fostering another child, and you’re posting inaccurate information like this – all my friends live in Cheektowaga, and my friends are not the kind of people who tolerate that nonsense. It wasn’t even that much pot – I need that story taken down,” added the woman.
Following our phone call, a woman named Kristina Poole publicly posted several comments on the Cheektowaga Chronicle Facebook page mirroring our conversation.
