CARLTON – An Albion man was arraigned for attempted murder in the second-degree for after he allegedly fired two shots from a rifle on Jan. 2 at Roadies Pizzeria and Sports Bar on Route 98.

Scott A. Foley, 52, also was arraigned in Orleans County Court today on charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second and third degrees, reckless endangerment in the first degree, and driving while intoxicated.

The charge of attempted murder in the second degree carries a maximum of 25 years in prison. It is a more serious charge from when Foley was arrested on Jan. 2 with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree the most serious charge.

District Attorney Joe Cardone said Foley showed a depraved indifference to human life by firing the rifle twice from his vehicle in the parking lot. One of the rounds was recovered inside the pizzeria and sports bar.

Foley was at Roadies and was asked to leave by one of the co-owners after a “disturbance,” Cardone said.

Foley left and returned, allegedly shooting a rifle from the parking lot.

Cardone said the incident was unprovoked and “an extremely serious situation.”

Foley has been in the county jail since his arrest. His attorney, Jim Doyle, asked that bail be set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond. He said Foley isn’t a flight risk and would makes all of his court appearances.

Judge Sanford Church set bail at $15,000 cash or $75,000 bond. The judge also issued two orders of protections for a co-owner of Roadies and an employee.

• In another case today, a 17-year-old boy from Albion was arraigned on several counts for his role in allegedly being part of break-ins at a used car business on Ridge Road in Ridgeway and a bottle/can redemption center on Hamilton Street in Albion.

The boy, who is expected to get youthful offender status, was arraigned on two counts of burglary in the third degree, one count of grand larceny in the fourth degree, two counts of criminal mischief in in the third degree, and one count of petit larceny. He is one of three co-defendants in the case.

• The judge also issued a warrant for Jason Pullen, 35, of Rochester who has missed his last three court appearances. He was arraigned on Dec. 12 for grand larceny in the fourth degree for allegedly stealing a trailer.
