According to Clarkstown Police, James intentionally cut wires belonging to Verizon Communications at two separate locations, causing a “substantial interruption of telephone, data, and video services to the community and property damage in excess of $10,000 to each location.”

The first alleged incident occurred Monday, January 15 at approximately 9 p.m. on Pineview Avenue in Bardonia and the second alleged incident occurred on Tuesday morning at 2:30 a.m. on Joseph Lane, also in Bardonia.

James was arraigned in Clarkstown Justice Court before Judge Craig Johns and remanded to Rockland Correctional Facility in lieu of $70,000 cash bail. He will appear in court on Friday, January 17.

The name Jesse James originally gained fame due to the notorious outlaw, bank robber of the late 19th century. It is also the name of  the motorcycle guru and ex-husband of actress Sarah Bullock, who claims
