'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Monessen man that was bitten by a Monessen K-9 officer after leading police on a chase was released from the hospital Thursday.

Jason Stinogle, 31, of 1340 Allison Ave., turned himself into Monessen police at Monongahela Valley Hospital after he was released from the hospital after being treated for a “substantial” bite wound to his left calf, police said.

Stinogle is charged with four counts of obedience to traffic control devices, two counts each of recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another, disorderly conduct, reckless driving and speeding, and single counts of flight to avoid apprehension, illegally taunting police animal, resisting arrest, harassment-repeatedly alarm or annoy and fleeing or attempting to elude officers.

In a separate complaint, he was charged with two counts of indirect criminal contempt for violating a protection from abuse order.

Monessen K-9 officer Uri caught Stinogle as he tried to flee into his residence after the chase led police from the Herman Mihalich Memorial Boat Launch through the city's Eastgate section and up Parente Boulevard. Speeds reached over 80 mph, police said.

Officer Aaron Thompson subdued Stinogle with a Taser as he struggled with Uri.

Stinogle was transported by police to their station where he was treated by Mon Valley Emergency Medical Service personnel. He was later transported to the hospital.

Upon his hospital release, Stinogle was transported to the office of Magisterial District Judge Joseph Dalfonso in Monessen where he was arraigned on the charges.

Dalfonso sent him to the Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $25,000 straight cash bond and an additional $10,000 bond for the PFA violation, Monessen police Chief John Mandarino said.

Stinogle is scheduled to appear before Dalfonso for a preliminary hearing 10:30 a.m. May 9.
