A Fort Drum man who Watertown police allege intentionally drove his car at four pedestrians late Saturday night was being held Monday under $1,000 bail in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building.
Brent N. Monday, 24, was arraigned Sunday before part-time Watertown City Judge Catherine J. Palermo on eight charges stemming from a disturbance at Exchange Street and 536 Arsenal St. shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday. The four pedestrians suffered minor injuries and declined treatment, police said.
Mr. Monday is charged with four counts of second-degree reckless endangerment and single counts of reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, speeding and making an unsafe start.
Police said he accelerated from a stopped position on Exchange Street, heading east, and struck Cody L. Chayhitz, 28, of 305 W. Main St.; Tyler A. Faith, 22, Fort Drum, and Jacob A. Satchwell, 25, and Joshua A. Satchwell, 25, both of 622 Seneca St. Joshua Satchwell was thrown onto the hood of Mondays vehicle, then fell off, hitting and denting a car owned by Kimberly L. Harten, 20721 Route 12F, and occupied by Matthew C. Currier, 33, of 13 VanBuren St., Antwerp, police said.
The motorist drove away, last seen heading south on Scio Street, police said. Mr. Monday was arrested Sunday.
Police listed the pedestrians injuries as a bruised elbow for Jacob Satchwell, injured toe for Joshua Satchwell, left thigh for Mr. Faith and right shin for Mr. Chayhitz.
