OLD FORGE, N.Y. – Town of Webb police arrested a Forestport man Saturday, after he allegedly hit a deer with his truck on purpose near the Old Forge Fire Department.

The deer was standing in the road between the fire station and Old Forge Hardware when police say 18-year-old Grady N. Boulier sped up and intentionally hit the deer, dragging the animal before it was thrown off the roadway.

Due to the extent of its injuries, the deer had to be euthanized.

Under environmental conservation laws, Boulier was charged with taking a deer while in a motor vehicle, taking of a deer from a public highway and taking a deer during a closed season. He was also charged with purposely injuring an animal under agriculture and markets law. Police also issued Boulier a traffic ticket for unreasonable speed.

Boulier was released with an appearance ticket, and is due back in court at a later date.
