OAKLAND TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A Cooperstown man is behind bars after reportedly fleeing police on July 4 during a traffic stop.

Court documents indicate the Venango County Sheriff’s Department filed the following charges against
27-year-old Roman Eugene Incorvia:

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on July 4.

According to a criminal complaint, around 8:02 p.m. on July 4, Deputy Heller, of the Venango County Sheriff’s Office, was on patrol when he observed a black Jeep Liberty in the area of 1339 Cherrytree Road, in Oakland Township, with a faulty right rear running light. Deputy Heller then initiated a traffic stop.

The vehicle then “took off” at a high rate of speed down Cherrytree Road. It finally came to a stop in the area of 973 Cherrytree Road, and the driver exited on foot and ran into the woods, the complaint indicates.

Deputy Heller was able to positively identify the driver of the vehicle as Roman Eugene Incorvia, according to the complaint.

Incorvia was arraigned in front of Judge Fish at 8:40 p.m. on July 8.

Unable to post $10,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Venango County Jail.

A preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Andrew F. Fish is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 15, in Venango County Central Court.
