MAN DRAGS A DEAD DEER INTO BANK IN CHECK DISPUTE

Depositing a buck in the bank doesn't usually stop people dead in their tracks.

But that's what happened when Edward Aragi dragged a dead male deer into a branch of People's Bank in a dispute over a bounced check.

Aragi, 70, plopped the carcass in a customer service representative's office Tuesday and refused to remove it until the banker settled a clerical mistake with his checking account, police said.

"He said he wasn't satisfied with the service he received, so he brought the deer into the bank to get their attention and refused to move it until he got satisfaction," Police Lt. Joseph Falzetti said. "He did end up getting attention."

Aragi, who had legally hunted and killed the buck the day before, removed the deer when asked.

The bank, in turn, promised to look into his complaint and notify him by mail of their findings.

Aragi of Pound Ridge was charged with misdemeanor breach of peace. He faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
