Jan 12, 2011 6:54 am
A Chatham man faces felony charges after he allegedly led State Police on a chase early Tuesday, according to this morning's Times Union, which is reporting that Robert E. Perez, 29, is charged with resisting arrest, unlawfully fleeing a police officer, felony DWI, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession after he failed to stop at a stop sign and led police on a 10-mile chase through Columbia County. Around 2:30 a.m., troopers in Livingston said Perez failed to stop at a stop sign on Route 203. Perez did not pull over for police and drove about 10 miles on various roads before finally stopping at Route 21 and Pheasant Lane in the town of Hillsdale. Perez refused to leave his car and allegedly resisted when police tried to remove him by force, troopers added. Perez's breath had a strong alcohol odor and he refused to take a Breathalyzer test, troopers said, and he also allegedly had some marijuana. Perez was arraigned in Greenport Town Court and sent to Columbia County Jail without bail. He is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday.
