'Lights out' request turns violent at local drive-in

A man reported to Niagara County Sheriff's deputies Sunday night that he was punched by a woman Sunday night at the Transit Drive-In on South Transit Road.

Parked in front of one of the screens with a woman, the man said they noticed a neighboring car had its headlights on and they were shining onto the movie screen.

Failing to get the lone occupant of the car's attention, the woman in the car with the victim said she walked over to the car and asked the occupant to turn off the lights. The woman in the car replied, "(Expletive) off."

A short time later the occupant of the car walked over to the man and woman's car, opened the driver's-side door and punched the man in the head. She then drove off. 

The man wasn't injured but did wish to press charges. A license plate number was provided to deputies and they determined it belonged to a Tonawanda woman. A phone message was left at her home.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
