11-20-2004 Five Arrested in Turkey-Hurling Incident RONKONKOMA, N.Y. - Five teenagers were arrested in the hurling of a frozen turkey that smashed through a motorist's windshield, critically injuring her. Police said Ryan Cushing, 18, threw the turkey from a car he and the other teens were riding in Saturday. It smashed through the car window of a 44-year-old woman who was driving in the other direction. She was in critical condition at Stony Brook University Hospital. Cushing was arrested on charges of first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, forgery, criminal mischief and criminal possession of stolen property. He and the other teens allegedly stole a credit card to buy the turkey at a supermarket. Ronkonkoma is in the approximate geographic center of New York's Long Island, about 50 miles east of New York City. ============================================================ More Political "Fallout"???
