Man covers vehicle in manure: deputies

ST. JOHNSVILLE – Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies said a St. Johnsville man was arrested after covering a vehicle in manure.

Kerry Lee Stowell, 43, of 2545 Kennedy Road, was charged with disorderly conduct after the incident Monday.

Deputies said Stowell was operating his tractor with a manure spreader on a roadway. When a vehicle passed him in the opposite direction, Stowell turned on the spreader, covering the passing vehicle in manure, deputies said.

Montgomery County Undersheriff Pete Vroman said the motive for the incident is unknown.

Stowell is scheduled to appear in Town Court later this month.
