Driver Charged with Dangerous Operation


On December 20, 2021, officers with Patrol Services charged 32-year-old Marcus Iacoboni with dangerous operation.

Around 1:00 p.m. officers observed a vehicle driving erratically near the Great Northern Road and Second Line East intersection. The vehicle turned east bound on Second Line East, officers activated emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop just past Old Garden River Road.
