Long Island man involved in fatal drag race arrested on gun charge

MINEOLA, N.Y. — A Long Island man who received six months in jail and five years on probation for his role in a drag racing crash that killed five teenagers is facing weapons and endangerment charges.

Cory Gloe was arrested late Wednesday in Farmingdale after allegedly firing a 12-gauge shotgun in the air. No one was injured.

Bail was set at $100,000. Newsday ( ) reported that his attorney said it is not certain who fired the shotgun.

Gloe was in May sentenced for the 2014 street race crash. He was granted youthful offender status because he was 17 at the time.

The judge said justice would not be served by giving him prison time.

Prosecutors objected and noted he had posted an online epithet to police after pleading guilty to manslaughter charges.
