Waterloo man leads police on pursuit, crashes into cemetery

A Waterloo man is facing multiple charges Thursday morning after a pursuit through the Village, which led to his vehicle crashing into the Maple Grove Cemetery.

Authorities in Waterloo say that on Thursday at 12:27 am police attempted to stop a vehicle on North Road after the vehicle was observed traveling at a high rate of speed, failing to stop at a stop sign. When police attempted to stop the driver, who was later identified as Brian E. Macgill, of Waterloo, he fled in his vehicle at a high rate of speed – leading police on a pursuit.

The Waterloo Police Department reports that Macgill failed to stop at several stop signs and was operating his vehicle recklessly, before finally crashing his vehicle into the Maple Grove Cemetery on Start St. and West Wright Ave.

When he crashed his vehicle, police were able to take Macgill into custody without further incident.

Macgill was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation in the first degree, felony driving while intoxicated, unlawful fleeing of police, two counts of speed in zone, use of a vehicle without an interlock device, three counts of failure to stop at a stop sign, two counts of failure to keep right, improper plates, unregistered motor vehicle, reckless driving, and unlicensed operator.

Police say Macgill was arraigned in Waterloo Village Court and remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility on no bail. He is scheduled to appear in Waterloo Village Court on September 6 for further action.
