Police Log: April 18, 2013 — Felony arrest

PLATTSBURGH — A Dannemora man was arrested on felony driving-while-intoxicated charges after a police car chase.

At about 12:45 a.m. April 7, Jason F. Broomall, 31, led police on a five-minute chase that started at the city parking lot on Durkee Street when police attempted to pull him over for a traffic violation, Plattsburgh City Police said.

The emergency-response chase was called off, but police continued to pursue Broomall, police said.

Two other officers saw Broomall driving near the intersection of Cornelia Street and Grace Avenue and chased him down a private driveway before stopping him.

Police used a Taser on Broomall to subdue him, but to no effect, police said.

He was physically apprehended by police and charged with felony DWI with a prior offense in the past 10 years, misdemeanor DWI, speeding, passing through a red light, failing to stop at two stop signs, reckless driving, unlawful fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle, first-degree reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.

Broomall had a passenger in the car, whose name was not available.

Witness Jeremy Kain gave a statement to police regarding the incident. (Police had originally mistakenly provided Kain’s name as the passenger.)

After being checked at CVPH Medical Center, Broomall was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court and sent to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.

He has since posted bail, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.
