RUSSELL - A Russell man was jailed Friday after he allegedly swerved to strike a pedestrian on the side of the road.
St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department deputies charged Donald M. Carlin Jr., 31, 2785 County Route 24, Russell, with felony counts of second-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangerment. He was also charged with fourth-degree stalking, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and ticketed for failure to keep right, operation of a vehicle with unsafe tires and operation of an uninspected motor vehicle.
Deputies said Carlin was southbound on County Route 24, near the Pyrites-Russell Road, when they allege he intentionally exited the roadway and struck Brandon W. Monroe, 34.
Carlin reportedly continued southbound on County Route 24, fleeing the scene. He later turned himself in at the St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department office.
Monroe was transported to Canton-Potsdam Hospital by Russell Rescue for treatment of a broken left forearm and several lacerations and contusions.
Carlin was arraigned by Pierrepont Town Justice Robert Camp and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $15,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
