Darris Kilgour, former coach of the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team, was arrested earlier this month on charges of menacing and harassment.

Kilgour was arrested June 7 by the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office on charges of menacing, second-degree harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. He was arraigned in Lewiston Town Court and released after posting $1,000 bail. He is due back in court Tuesday.

Kilgour, 43, of Susie’s Lane in Lewiston, reportedly had gone to the home of his estranged wife shortly after 9 a.m. June 7 to drop off their son. Deputies said he reportedly was intoxicated and upset that her boyfriend was there. Kilgour allegedly had a hammer in his hand and was trying to go into the house.

The wife told deputies that she tried to block him from coming inside but that he shoved her to the ground and harassed her boyfriend.

Deputies arrested Kilgour on a warrant at his house later that day.

The sheriff’s report noted that felony assault charges also are pending against Kilgour in a previous domestic case last Jan. 3, when Kilgour allegedly punched the wife’s boyfriend in the head, knocking him to the ground, and then continued to punch and knee him in the face and head. The man was treated at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital for a fractured orbital bone.
