Asbestos contaminates debris in Brentwood park

Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota said May 6, 2014, that asbestos -- the kind that is easily airborne -- has been found in the construction and demolition debris dumped at Islip Town's Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood. Joseph Montuori, town parks commissioner, was forced to resign, in a criminal probe of the dumping. (Credit: News 12 Long Island)
