CORINTH — A village resident is facing a host of charges after allegedly using a vehicle — while he was intoxicated — to damage a building Monday on Main Street, according to a Saratoga County Sheriff's Office report.
Nicholas L. Carleton, 36, of 250 Main St., Apartment 1, was charged with three counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, a felony, and the misdemeanors of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest, along with several vehicle and traffic law violations, deputies said.
The arrest happened after deputies responded to a report of a fight at 250 Main St. An investigation revealed that Carleton intentionally drove a vehicle into the building, which was occupied at the time, several times, deputies said.
He was intoxiated at the time, according to the deputies' report, and resisted arrest — deputies said he repeatedly hit himself in the face and slammed his head into the hood of a sheriff's patrol vehicle, causing damage to the vehicle.
Carleton was arraigned in Corinth Town Court and was sent to county jail to await further proceedings in the matter, deputies said.
