PLATTSBURGH A Plattsburgh man is facing felony charges for allegedly striking his mother in the head with a sharp object hooked to a bicycle chain after she made a comment about "American Idol."
Cory K. Favreau, 24, of 200A Margaret St. was discussing the television show "American Idol" with his mother, Jan M. Chagnon, on May 24 at about 10:15 p.m., according to Plattsburgh City Court records.
At that time, Chagnon told Favreau that a particular contestant, Katharine McPhee, was going to have a successful career despite losing to another contestant, Taylor Hicks.
Favreau allegedly stood up, made a malicious comment to his mother and struck her in the head with a sharpened, cross-shaped object attached to a bicycle chain.
Court records say that Favreau and Chagnon were drinking alcohol at the time.
Chagnon was treated at CVPH Medical Center for a cut to the top of her head and was released.
Favreau was charged with second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was sent to Clinton County Jail, where he was still being held Wednesday for lack of $5,000 cash bail.
Chagnon had told City Police she did not want to press charges because she said her son did not intend to hurt her. Police can press charges themselves in cases where they feel it is warranted.
Favreau was convicted in Clinton County Court in 2003 of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and sentenced to a year in jail.
He is scheduled to reappear June 5 in City Court.
Favreau? Wonder if they are part of the flotsam which drifted away from New Orleans?
And some tried to say we Kat fans were the nutty ones.
More Blue State Blues.
You know.. several of those top 5 people are going to have profitable careers... maybe not long or super-stardom but they will make some money
Plattsburgh, the gateway to Quebec.
The biggest argument I ever had with my Mother was over Elian Gonzales. I never tried to hit her with a bike chain though.
HOW MANY MORE, MR. SPEAKER? How many more must die, before we outlaw forever this brutal and dangerous pastime?
I'd buy a McPhee CD.
I'm sure that he had that for self defense.
The marketing tie-ins are natural!
At least no one on the AI thread tried to hit anyone else with a bike chain. At least not that I know of.
Imagine the carnage if they had been playing videogames!!!
I'd say that roughly a third of the native-born inhabitants of Plattsburgh have at least some French-Canadian ancestry.
What an idiot.
How many times must cross-shaped objects be used
Before they're forever banned?
Synonymous for Thunderbird...
