  • Two teenagers from Bath are facing felony charges for allegedly throwing rocks and a piece of metal at passing vehicles on Interstate 86, and a man has been arrested for buying them alcohol.
    Wyatt Tucker, 18, of McMaster Street, and Dakota Kidder, 16, of West William Street, were both charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, a Class D felony, for throwing rocks and a piece of metal at vehicles near the Cameron Street underpass early Saturday morning, according to Bath-based New York State Police.
    Two commercial vehicle drivers reported being struck by the objects. The truck drivers were unhurt, but their windshields were heavily damaged, according to state police.
    Johnathan Buckley, 21, of Campbell Street in Bath, was also arrested.
    Buckley was charged with two counts of first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. The charges are Class A misdemeanors.
    Buckley allegedly bought alcohol for the teens, and was present during the alleged incident, according to state police. The three were drinking in the Cameron Street underpass tunnel before Tucker and Kidder threw the objects, state police say.
    The three suspects were arrested following a joint investigation by state police and the Bath Police Department.
    Tucker and Kidder were arraigned in Bath Village Court. Tucker was released on his own recognizance, and Kidder was sent to Steuben County Jail on $5,000 bail. Buckley was issued an appearance ticket and released.
    All three suspects are scheduled to appear in Bath Village Court at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
