A local man arrested last year for his involvement in a brawl on Oak Street in the village of Tupper Lake was sentenced to probation last week in Franklin County Court.
Tupper Lake Village Police arrested 24-year-old Richard A. Jangro last October following a fight that Chief Tom Fee dubbed the “Melee on Oak.”
Numerous local residents were arrested following the incident – the fight also sparked a manhunt for a rape suspect. The fight began the evening of October 3 and continued into the early morning hours of October 4. One person who was not involved in the brawl was injured.
Jangro was originally charged with second-degree felony attempted assault, third-degree misdemeanor assault, and endangering the welfare of a child – in March, he pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted assault and endangering the welfare of child.
Last week, Franklin County Court Judge Penelope Clute sentenced Jangro to five years of probation and one-year conditional discharge.
