On May 27, 2024, around 10:10 a.m., Ontario County Sheriff’s deputies were conducting a traffic detail for the parade. It was reported that a male driving a black Toyota Camry had driven eastbound on West Main Street through individuals marching in the parade. Members of the Manchester Fire Department, who were participating in the parade, stopped the vehicle and handed the driver over to the Sheriff’s deputies.

Upon investigation, it was determined that John W. Parmele, 49, of Shortsville, was the driver of the 2014 black Toyota Camry. Mr. Parmele was subsequently arrested for reckless endangerment in the second degree. He was issued an appearance ticket and will appear in Manchester Town Court at a later date to answer the charges.
