Teen Attacks Guard at HS
An expelled teen from Uniondale allegedly assaulted a security guard at Uniondale High School. According to a report from News 12, 17-year-old Kevin Allen was expelled from school, then trespassed onto school property and attacked a security guard.

Nassau police say that Allen showed up to the high school on Monday. He was prohibited from entering the school, and the 79-year-old security repeatedly asked him to leave the premises. After refusing to leave, Allen allegedly struck him in the head and pushed the man to the ground.

Police were called and tracked Allen down. He is now facing charges of criminal trespassing and assault. Police did not say why Allen was originally suspended from the school.

The security guard was treated for back pain and was not seriously injured during the incident.

Man Accused of Driving High, Killing Woman in Crash
After a fatal crash that killed 71-year-old Camille Ricciardo on Wednesday night, Justin Klein is being accused of driving while under the influence of drugs.

Police say that 23-year-old Klein was driving a commercial pickup truck down Gazzola Drive in East Patchogue. He struck Ricciardo’s car in the crash, and the East Patchogue woman was killed.

Klein pleaded not guilty, however admitted to police that he had taken two Xanax pills – which is prescription anti-anxiety medication - before getting into his truck. Klein, from Medford, allegedly had heroin in his vehicle as well.
