FELONY ARRESTS

TICONDEROGA — A Ticonderoga man and woman were charged Wednesday following an assault investigation.

Caleb Fleming, 21, allegedly hit Antone Teriele, 20, in the back of the head with a set of brass knuckles at a Champlain Avenue residence in Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga Police said.

When officers arrived, Karissa Cook, 26, who lives in the residence, lied to police, telling them Fleming was not there, police said.

Teriele did not require medical attention, police said.

Fleming was found to be in possession of Adderall pills that were not prescribed to him, police said.

He was charged with first-degree assault, a felony; fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor; and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Cook was charged with second-degree obstructing government administration, a misdemeanor.

Fleming was arraigned and sent to Essex County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond.

CHAMPLAIN — A Chateaugay woman was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and drunken driving Tuesday.

Shortly before 9:35 p.m. on Route 276 in the Town of Champlain, State Police pulled over a vehicle driven by Sarah L. Prue, 32, according to a State Police blotter entry.

She was arrested less than 20 minutes later and charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a felony; second-degree criminal impersonation, a misdemeanor; operating a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 or more, a felony; and a felony DWI because she had a prior DWI conviction, according to State Police.
