Man sentenced for violation of probation
A man who first came to the attention of Hagerstown City Police in 1995 for a knife-wielding incident was back in Washington County Circuit Court Tuesday for violation of probation.
Nicholas Brent Santarelli, 36, of Hagerstown, was sentenced to the Washington County Detention Center for six months. He was given credit for the time served since he was picked up in January.
The probation violation related to new offenses including a September conviction for assault and resisting arrest and a drunken driving conviction. He also was found to be drinking alcohol again.
