WARSAW, N.Y. (WIVB) — Public safety dissuaded police from continuing a high speed pursuit last week — they called the chase off.
But the alleged driver of the car wasn’t on the lam long. Police in Perry say they captured Donald Krohn, a 30-year-old Bliss native, not long after.
The chase started after someone called concerned about Krohn’s well-being. Police who were performing the welfare check say they found his car in Warsaw when he took off and sped away.
Police say while racing down Main Street at a high speed, he violated several laws, including running a stop signal. Police called off the chase, but are now charging the man with fleeing police, reckless driving, speeding in zone, failure to comply and failure to stop at a stop sign.
Krohn was arraigned and put in Wyoming County Jail on $2,000 bail. He’ll return to court at a later date.
