ROME, N.Y. -- The Rome man who lead State Police an local authorities on a lengthy slow-speed chase on a log-skidder, has been sentenced.
Charles Anken, 43 of Rome, was sentenced to one and a half to three years in prison.
In February 2019, Anken was driving his log-skidder while under-the-influence.
He led police on a chase that lasted for several hours. State Police say he chased his father's pickup truck with the skidder, right before he drove off into a wooded area, abandoning it.
Part of that chase was caught on cell phone video.
Anken was apparently in a dispute with a family member right before the chase.
