SCHENECTADY – A city man fled a traffic stop Thursday morning and only stopped when his car couldn’t go any further, authorities said.
The driver also faces a felony related to a forged registration, according to police accusations filed in court.
The incident happened at about 9:20 a.m. on Victory Avenue, near Grove Place, according to the police accusations.
The driver, identified as Takeam J. Robles, 26, of Cherry Street, is accused of ignoring police lights and sirens and a direction to stop by “fleeing at a high rate of speed,” according to the police allegations.
