The case is still under investigation.
FRIDAY, Sept. 4, 5:49 p.m. — Officers responded to the East Gym Fitspace due to an unruly 24-year-old male, Reilly said. Workers said that the suspect had his account frozen and was not allowed onto the premises. The suspect refused to leave the gym. Officers escorted him outside of the gym. They told him that if he were to return while his account is still frozen, he would be arrested.
SATURDAY, Sept. 5, 2:16 a.m. — Officers driving on East Drive noticed that a car going west was traveling at a high speed, Reilly said. After the car went over a speed bump, it shook violently and its tires screeched as they hit the road. The officers pulled the vehicle over and asked for the 21-year-old male’s identification. The officers found that the suspect’s license was suspended. The suspect was given a ticket for unlicensed driving returnable to Vestal town court.
