Koch is accused of intentionally driving toward the ex-husband when the man got out of his vehicle in a Buffalo restaurant parking lot on Saturday. The man hurt his hand while jumping out of the way to avoid being hit, Flynn said. Koch then hit the man's vehicle, damaging the passenger side, the prosecutor said.

 

...

 

A police report obtained by WIVB said Koch was pulling his SUV out of the parking area when the man arrived in his pickup truck and got out. The man approached Koch's vehicle “in an attempt to fight the defendant, stating, ‘Let’s settle this like men,’” the police report said.

 

...

 

Flynn told reporters the ex-husband went to the restaurant because he knew his former wife was there.

 

“It was not a chance encounter,” he said.

The victim initiated the incident and threatened the New Era CEO.  Then the CEO hit him with his car. 

If you've ever been to Oliver's... the parking lot is valet. It is also tiny.  Here's a google street view of the parking lot (you may have to arrow over). Did the "victim" block the exit and confront the CEO?  Oliver's should have video, so what actually happened (my side, your side, the truth) should be available for view soon.

If someone threatens you, are you allowed to escape?

Exactly.  If you can't deal with your ex-wife moving on, maybe you should have been a better husband.

You are allowed to escape, but driving a vehicle intentionally at someone is key. Not knowing the entirety of the circumstances, his actions could be justified

Original charge against New Era Cap CEO reduced, new charge added in connection to Delaware Avenue incident
 

The original felony charge against New Era Cap Company CEO, 61-year-old Christopher Koch, in connection to an incident on Delaware Avenue has been reduced and a new charge has been added.
 

The Erie County District Attorney's Office announced Koch appeared in Buffalo City Court Tuesday for a scheduled felony hearing. Koch was accused of attempting to hit a man with his vehicle on Delaware Avenue in May and arraigned on one count of first-degree reckless endangerment. 
 

According to the district attorney’s office, it determined the felony charge could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. The felony charge was reduced to one count of second-degree reckless endangerment (Class “A” misdemeanor) and prosecutors filed an additional charge against Koch — fourth-degree criminal mischief (Class “A” misdemeanor). He was arraigned Tuesday on the additional charge.

This article makes no sense. A person is not entitled to a felony hearing (which is to establish probable cause to hold the Defendant in custody pending action of a Grand Jury, and must be held within 120-144 hours of arrest) when they're ROR'd.
