Authorities say 27-year-old Elvis Guzman of Cincinnatus was treated at Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City for exposure to the icy water.

According to the Cortland County Sheriff's Office, a state trooper attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Guzman in the Whitney Point area Saturday (February 27) afternoon.

The vehicle matched a description of one operated by the suspect in a Cortland County domestic dispute.

Investigators say the vehicle did not stop for the trooper. It went off Route 79 south of Whitney Point and plunged into the pond. The trooper and a passerby helped Guzman out of the vehicle.

After he was treated at the hospital, Guzman was charged with second-degree assault, second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He also faces three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Guzman was arraigned in Willet town court and sent to Cortland County Jail on $10,000 bail.

Police say the woman Guzman was accused of assaulting sustained serious injuries. She was taken to Cortland Regional Memorial Center for treatment.
