GREENE – Derek W. Coviello, 38, of 265 Standish Road in Greene, was arrested Thursday for assaulting a New York State Trooper on May 20 in the Village of Greene.
During the incident, Coviello allegedly struck Trooper Christopher D. Marinelli in the head with two bricks. Marinelli suffered a head injury as a result of the attack. He was treated at Binghamton General Hospital and released. He is scheduled to return to active duty today.
According to the New York State Police Sgt. Gary Leahy, Marinelli and fellow Trooper Charles Tuttle encountered Coviello while responding to a 911 call placed by the Greene man’s parents, who described their son as “having a panic attack” and in an “extremely paranoid” state.
