RUSHVILLE, N.Y. (October 27, 2015) — Indiana Jones couldn’t outrace his pursuers this time.
Authorities say a 21-year-old man named Indiana Z. Jones led police on a chase that topped 100 mph on a road in New York’s Finger Lakes region.
Yates County Sheriff Ronald Spike says the chase started late Sunday when Jones tried to evade a traffic stop in his hometown of Rushville, 35 miles southeast of Rochester.
Spike says spike strips were used to puncture Jones’ tires after several miles, and he was taken into custody.
The charges include unlawfully fleeing police, speeding and having an unregistered, uninsured and uninspected vehicle.
Jones posted $1,000 bail and was released.
Court officials say Tuesday he doesn’t have a lawyer. A call to a phone number associated with Jones rang unanswered.
