DANUBE, N.Y. – A Utica man allegedly was involved in a crash after fleeing from state police when they pulled him over on the Thruway.

State police stopped Lato-Shamee Jenkins, 23, on the Thruway in the town of Danube Sunday around 9:20 p.m., when he allegedly sped off before the troopers could approach the vehicle. Police followed Jenkins to the Little Falls exit but stopped chasing him in Manheim due to unsafe speeds.

A few minutes later, police received reports of a hit and run with property damage in Little Falls involving Jenkins’ vehicle. Police located him down the road from the accident, uninjured.

Police found Jenkins to be intoxicated, with a blood alcohol content of .11%. He was taken into custody and charged with unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and several vehicle and traffic violations.

Jenkins was released to a sober third party and issued appearance tickets returnable to the Town of Danube Court on Nov. 18.
