ALBION – An Albion man pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court last week to first-degree reckless endangerment for firing two shots from a rifle on Jan. 2, 2020 at Roadies Pizzeria and Sports Bar on Route 98 in Carlton. One of the rounds was recovered inside the pizzeria and sports bar.

Scott Foley, 53, also pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and driving while intoxicated. He will be sentenced on June 9 and could face a maximum of 4 ½ years in state prison plus two years of post-release supervision.

Foley had rejected previous plea offers and a trial was supposed to start April 21. But Foley agreed to a plea agreement last week.

Foley was at Roadies on Jan. 2, 2020 and was asked to leave by one of the co-owners after a “disturbance,” DA Joe Cardone said in court on Feb. 20, 2020. Foley left and returned, allegedly shooting a rifle from the parking lot.

Cardone, in a previous court appearance, said Foley showed a depraved indifference to human life by firing the rifle twice from his vehicle in the parking lot.
