Syracuse, NY (WSYR-TV) – Anthony Saccone is back at the Onondaga County Justice Center Sunday morning after “stunt driving,” according to Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick.

At approximately 2:03 a.m. this morning, deputies patrolling the area of Electronics Parkway
near 7th North Street observed a 1983 Chevrolet Malibu performing a “burnout”.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the car and identified the operator of the vehicle as Anthony Saccone.

Deputies discovered that Saccone consumed alcohol while operating the car. Saccone refused to take a breath test and was taken into custody. He is currently being held in jail with $500,000 bail.

Saccone is accused of driving 86 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone when he blew through a red light, killing 18-year-old Michael Walker, 19-year-old Baylie Rose and 20-year-old Samra Osmanovic on Feb. 23.

The crash happened at the intersection of Onondaga Boulevard and Onondaga Road in the Town of Onondaga. 

According to court documents obtained by NewsChannel 9 earlier this year, investigators believe Saccone was drunk and had taken cocaine before the deadly crash.

Fitzpatrick says he is not sure when Saccone will be seen by a judge.
