On July 7, 2020, State Police arrested 55-year-old Leo T. Compo Jr., of Ogdensburg after he nearly collided with another person in a vehicle on July 6, 2020, at approximately 7:24 p.m. The victim was traveling westbound on State Route 37 in the town of Lisbon, when Compo, traveling east, swerved into his lane, causing the victim to take evasive action to avoid a collision. This act also violated an active ‘stay-away’ order of protection.
Compo was charged with one count of Reckless Endangerment 2nd degree, A misdemeanor, and one count of Criminal Contempt 1st degree, E felony. He was arraigned by the Gouverneur Town Court, and released on his own recognizance. Compo is ordered to reappear in the Lisbon Town Court at a later date.
