FORT PLAIN -- A Fort Plain businessman is facing new charges after he was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident with the Fort Plain fire chief's vehicle Monday night.

Fort Plain Police Chief Robert Thomas III said that Dennis Todd, 62, of 24 Willett St., Fort Plain, was charged at around 5:45 p.m. Monday with driving while ability impaired by drugs, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to keep right following the reported collision on Railroad Street.

Within minutes of the mishap, the vehicle and driver were located nearby, and Todd was administered a field sobriety test, Thomas said.

Todd was arrested and processed at the police station. Additional information was not available at press time.

Todd, the owner of a number of local commercial properties, was charged earlier this year in connection with allegations that he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old male and physically assaulted one of the child's adult relatives by hitting him on the head with a baseball bat.

Later, additional charges stemmed from his alleged attack on a Channel 13 news team who were trying to interview him. Todd was charged with felony reckless endangerment; criminal possession of a weapon, a Class A misdemeanor; and, harassment in connection with the incident, which was partially captured on tape by the WNYT News 13 videographer.
