Teen accused of taking car on overnight joy ride

By Howard B. Owens

A 16-year-old Le Roy resident is accused of taking a 2000 Dodge Stratus on a joy ride overnight and when he allegedly failed to put it in park when he fled the car, the car rolled into a Sheriff's patrol vehicle.

Charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle and unlicensed operation is Daniel Alden Faville, of West Main Street, Le Roy.

Faville was allegedly operating the car on Route 5 in the village at 3 a.m.

He reportedly pulled the vehicle onto Craigie Street, where he fled from the car on foot. The car was reportedly not put in park and it rolled into a deputy's vehicle.

Faville was reportedly found later located at his residence where he was taken into custody.

The incident was handled by deputies Frank Bordonaro and Howard Carlson and Officer Dent of Le Roy PD.

Faville was also cited for alleged no headlights, no taillights, unattended motor vehicle and inadequate exhaust.

Just curious. Did the car he hit belong to Officer Dent? Hope it didn't leave a big "dent". I know it's bad but that is the first thing I thought of. It has been one of those days.
