Charges describe party preceding bike-truck crash

Family sets up recovery fund for badly injured Selkirk teen

— Officers entered the home and found marijuana with smoking paraphernalia visible, along with empty alcohol containers, police said. Brett Belleville, 21, and Mike Anthony Crisafulli, 17, both living at the same address on Elm Avenue in Selkirk, were said to be uncooperative, so a search warrant was obtained.

Police said they found 20 pipes and other devices for smoking marijuana in the home containing marijuana residue, 3.4 grams of marijuana, two grinders, two street signs and a pellet gun.

Later in the night, Beebe said the two men turned themselves in. They were charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, acting in a manner injurious to a child and possession of marijuana. All the charges are misdemeanors.

According to statements taken from eight people who attended the party ranging in age from 14 to 16 years old, Coluccio was “drunk” before leaving the party. He then allegedly got into a fight with a friend after Coluccio urinated on his leg.

Witnesses said Belleville had brought a case of beer, while the rest was brought by partygoers. Marijuana was witnessed being rolled into “dutches,” or a cigarillo-type joint, on the dining room table, according to witness statements.

After another fight broke out, Crisafulli ended the party because “he said his mom was coming home,” said one witness.

“My friend and I were sitting out front and Shayne (Coluccio) stumbled toward us,” said a witness in a statement to police. “My friend asked if he was OK and he continued to walk toward me and fall into me.”

One partygoer told police a girl had left the party by ambulance.

Coluccio is now out of critical condition but will still need to undergo surgery and need extensive rehabilitation, according to his aunt Karen Wilks.

“We don’t know what the future will hold,” she said. “He won’t be able to go to school and he will need to learn to walk all over again.”
