TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Tupper Lake man is accused of threatening someone with a knife while he was driving the victim’s car.

State police say 21-year-old Chase Vaillancourt-Nadeau menaced the victim inside the car, which prevented the victim from leaving.

The victim escaped when Vaillancourt-Nadeau stopped the car. Then he drove off.

Troopers located him a short time later and charged him with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, second-degree menacing, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Vaillancourt-Nadeau was arraigned in Tupper Lake town court and released to reappear in that court at a later date.
