A man accused of attacking a 64-year-old crossing guard could face additional jail time for violating conditions of probation in a DUI case from last year, a judge said Wednesday.
Adam Kondrat was driving about 50 mph and cutting off other vehicles in a school zone Monday morning near Gehring Elementary School, at Maryland Parkway near Silverado Ranch Boulevard, when a crossing guard forced him to stop, according to his arrest report.
Kondrat, 21, got out of his car and attacked crossing guard Dano McKay, kicking and punching him until he fell to the ground and dropped his stop sign, a witness told police.
Kondrat’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Sabrina J. Torres, then picked up the stop sign and handed it to Kondrat, witnesses told police. Kondrat looked like he was going to hit McKay with the sign when a retired police sergeant intervened.
Robert Gibbs, who is currently a railroad police officer, was on his motorcycle driving to his daughter’s high school when he saw the door of Kondrat’s black Audi pop open. He watched Kondrat get out of the car, walk up to McKay and punch him in the face.
On Wednesday, Kondrat appeared via video from the Clark County Detention Center before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure. Prosecutor Brian Rutledge said Kondrat violated his probation for a September 2013 DUI.
Bonaventure ordered Kondrat back to court next week, when he could face 30 days to six months in jail the DUI.
Kondrat also has a preliminary hearing next month in a robbery case and a domestic battery charge filed Aug. 26.
Torres was also being held at the jail and faces charges of battery, conspiracy to commit mayhem and giving a false statement to a police officer. Her bail is set at $4,000.
