The Whitesboro motorist, Emilio Curtacci, 22, was recently arrested on Oneida St. by Motorcycle Patrolman Harold La More. When brought into court, Curtacci was urged by Judge Lewis to get rid of the machine. Instead, Curtacci had the brakes repaired and he told Judge Lewis this morning he would continue to drive it.
