A Riverhead man is facing a felony reckless endangerment charge after a dispute at a large party early this morning at a Sound Avenue farm.

Riverhead Police said at about 12:30 this morning they received a report of a disturbance at the the Wells farm at 5048 Sound Avenue in Riverhead regarding a tractor being driven into a crowd.

Responding patrol units located Todd Wells, 60, of Riverhead at the location and “what appeared to be the remnants of a large party,” according to a police press release.

Detectives investigating the incident determined there was a dispute at a large party at the location and one of the people involved drove a farm tractor into a large tent on the property, according to the release. The tent was damaged, but there were no injuries reported, police said.

Wells was arrested on a charge of Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree, a Class D Felony, police said. He was processed and held for arraignment in Riverhead Justice Court.

Anyone with any information in this case is asked to contact the Riverhead Town Police at 631-727-4500. All calls will be kept confidential, police said.

Editor’s note: A criminal charge is an accusation. A person charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
