WESTMORELAND, NY – An Oneida County man is facing charges after police say he damaged a vehicle during an alleged road rage incident.
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office says on Friday 23-year-old Michael Pritchard of Blossvale was arrested on a charge of felony criminal mischief. Deputies say on September 15 he was involved in an argument with another driver in Rome, which continued southbound down Route 233 to the intersection with West Main Street in Westmoreland.
Pritchard is accused of getting out of his vehicle at that intersection and throwing an object at the other car, causing damage to the rear window.
Pritchard has been issued an appearance ticket and will return to Westmoreland Town Court at a later date.
