Hogansburg Man Arrested Following High-Speed Chase
A Hogansburg man is in trouble after he allegedly led police on a high-speed chase in Franklin County.
State police say they tried to stop 29 year old Brandon Cook on Route 37 in Fort Covington when he sped off at around 80 miles an hour.
His car stalled at one point, but he managed to get it started and sped off again.
Troopers say when they approached the vehicle after it finally stopped, Cook became physically confrontational.
Police say he had a blood alcohol content of .15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit, and had more than 10 grams of cocaine in his possession.
He was charged with driving while intoxicated, first degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, third degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer, and a number of vehicle and traffic violations.
Cook was arraigned in Bombay town court and sent to Franklin County jail on $5,000 bail.
