A Hudson Valley man is accused of hitting another man with a hammer while on the Taconic State Parkway.

On Monday around 4:15 p.m, New York State Police from Livingston were dispatched by Columbia County 911 to a physical domestic disturbance on the Taconic State Parkway.

A subsequent investigation revealed that during the dispute, 30-year-old James G. Corradina of Briarcliff Manor hit someone with a hammer, police say.

The unnamed male victim suffered a minor laceration. He was evaluated at the scene by Northern Dutchess Paramedics but declined further medical treatment.

Corradina was charged with second-degree menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, both class A misdemeanors.

Corradina was arraigned in the Town of Gallatin Court and released on his own recognizance. He is due to appear in the Town of Taghkanic Court on Feb 23.
