State Police arrested Kenneth L. Rice Jr., age 41 from Scranton, PA as a Fugitive from Justice. 

At approximately 8 a.m., a DOCCS Parole Officer attempted to pull over a 2009 GMC SUV and the operator refused to comply.   The vehicle then drove onto County Line Road and down a privately owned driveway.  The driver attempted to drive across a wooden snowmobile bridge when he lost control and drove off the bridge and landed in the creek below.  The operator, Kenneth L. Rice Jr., and a 38-year-old female were evaluated by EMS and declined any medical treatment. 

 
Rice was found to be wanted on a felony warrant issued from the State of Pennsylvania. Agents contacted State Police, who arrested Rice without incident as a Fugitive from Justice.  Rice was arraigned and is remanded to the Oswego County Jail to await extradition back to Pennsylvania.
