A Chase Through Binghamton and Dickinson Ends With Several Charges
A Binghamton man is accused of drunk driving while reportedly almost hitting a Broome County Sheriff’s Deputy patrol car.
Deputy Ryan Carnevale was patrolling on Broad Avenue in the City of Binghamton shortly before 3 a.m. August 26 when he saw an approaching Chevrolet Camaro veer into his lane, almost hitting his car.
Deputy Carnevale turned around, activated his emergency lights and sirens and attempted a traffic stop.
Carnevale reported the vehicle ran a red light, turned onto Bevier Street where it ran several other red lights and drove onto the curb repeatedly.
The Camaro turned right on Chenango Street, across a curb, hit a sign post and the front steps of a house before getting back onto the road.
The Deputy says the car then veered right into a curb again, hit another sign post and rammed into the back of a parked car, driving it into a telephone pole.
58 year old Rees Munro said he was not injured.
He’s charged with drunk driving, failure to comply with a police order, leaving the scene of an accident and a long list of vehicle and traffic violations.
Munro was sent to the Broome County Jail on $1,000.
