Police: Man damages vehicle with pry bar, then has foot run over during altercation in Seneca Falls

Police say two people were arrested after an altercation at a local business.

On Tuesday, the Seneca Falls Police Department arrested Ford J. Petrie, 21, of Romulus and Thomas R. McNeill, 30, of Seneca Falls.

On Monday police were called to a business on State Route 414, where McNeill is employed, for a dispute in progress. The investigation determined that during the dispute McNeill confronted two individuals, Petrie and another male, while they were in a motor vehicle.

During the confrontation McNeill began striking the vehicle with a pry bar causing damage. The vehicle, being operated by Petrie was placed in reverse and operated in a reckless manner, running over McNeill’s foot and nearly striking another uninvolved person.


It was also discovered that Petrie was operating the vehicle while his driver’s license was suspended.

Police said McNeill did not sustain any injuries during the incident and refused any medical treatment. Following the investigation McNeill was charged with one count of criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor.

Petrie was charged with unlicensed operator, a violation, one count of reckless driving and one count of aggravated unlicensed operation in the third degree, both misdemeanors.

Both were processed and released on an appearance ticket scheduling them to appear in the Town of Seneca Falls Court at a later date to answer the charges.
