Teen accused of striking trooper vehicles during chase in Otsego, Chenango counties

Posted: Updated:

(WBNG) -- A teenager faces multiple felonies following a domestic dispute and a multi-county chase on Sunday.

New York State Police say they received a call around 10:15 a.m. that a 16-year-old boy threatened someone with a knife during the argument at a home in the town of Otego.

The teen allegedly left in a vehicle and was spotted by troopers about an hour later on State Route 7, but would not pull over.

A road block was set up by trooper vehicles at the intersection of State Route 7 and Sheep Pen Road in Unadilla.

Authorities say when the teen reached the road block, he reversed, striking a trooper vehicle, then accelerated, smashing another trooper vehicle and plowing through the road block.

The teen then got on Interstate 88 west bound at Exit 10, and began traveling west and struck a third trooper vehicle on the highway in Afton.

He eventually got off the highway at Exit 6, and while traveling east on State Route 7 just before the village of Bainbridge, stuck a bridge support, troopers say.

The teen also allegedly intentionally rammed a trooper vehicle, one police say he had already smashed, which was trying to get ahead of the teen after he struck the bridge support.

The vehicle came to rest on State Route 7 and the teen was taken into custody. The teen was brought to Tri-Town Hospital in Sidney by ambulance and was medically cleared, authorities say.

The teen is charged with the following:

  • Grand larceny in the fourth degree, a felony
  • Two counts of criminal mischief in the second degree, felonies
  • Menacing in the second degree, a misdemeanor
  • Three counts of reckless endangerment in the second degree, misdemeanors
  • Reckless driving, a misdemeanor
  • Traffic tickets Otego, Unadilla, Sidney, Afton, Colesville, and Bainbridge

He was arraigned in Town of Otego Court and sent to the Otsego County Jail on $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond.
