Road Rage in the Town of Maine

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A dad and his two sons from the Town of Maine are facing charges for what Broome County Sheriff’s officials say started out as a road rage incident on Route 38B.

Authorities say at about 4:14 a.m. June 8, residents in the neighborhood saw three youths in a gray Saturn doing donuts in the road and driving recklessly. Deputies say one of the residents, 43 year old Joseph Kocian and his sons, 20 year old Mason and 18 year old Adam felt the action was directed against them and they gave chase.  The pursuit lasted about 20 minutes through the back roads of the Towns of Union and Maine before the father allegedly rammed his full-sized truck into the Saturn, sending off the road into a ditch on Commercial Drive.

Authorities say after the crash, the Kocians reportedly broke out two of the car’s windows and repeatedly punched the occupants before they were pulled off by deputies.

Dad is charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor reckless endangerment, reckless driving and assault.

20 year old Mason is charged with two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief and assault.

18 year old Adam is charged with a violation harassment count.

One of the youths in the car required medical attention for injuries to his face.

The Kocians were ordered to appear in court at a later date.

Deputies say the man and his sons did not know the occupants of the car prior to the incident.
