TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A 23-year-old Buffalo man was charged with fleeing a police officer and more than half a dozen moving violations early Wednesday morning.

According to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, Roger F. Tremblay, 159 Laird Ave., was seen driving back and forth on Donner Road in Pendleton without his lights on around 11:40 p.m. When deputies attempted to pull him over, he fled to South Transit Road and into the Woodlands.

"The vehicle turned into the Woodlands without signaling and proceeded in a westerly direction on Fernwood Drive," according to the NCSO report. "Patrol was joined by Deputy Finley in the pursuit through the park with all emergency lights and sirens activated. Patrol observed the vehicle being operated in an extremely reckless manner, speed that was not reasonable or prudent, the vehicle was failing to use the proper half of the roadway, and not stopping at stop signs. Patrol was unable to keep up with the vehicle and the pursuit was ended as patrol was approaching the intersection of Fernwood and Birchwood (drives) at which time patrol lost sight of the vehicle."

Other cars were called to assist in finding Tremblay and he was reported as being seen at the playground on Birchwood Drive, however by the time patrol arrived the vehicle had fled the area. A short time later all patrols were alerted that the vehicle had returned to the Donner Road area, but again the vehicle was gone by the time the first patrol car arrived in the area. While patrols were searching for the vehicle in the are of Donner and East Canal roads, the vehicle was spotted again with no lights driving on Donner Road toward South Transit Road.

Patrol immediately activated its lights and sirens to give chase as another deputy readied spike strips at the end of Donner Road to halt the oncoming vehicle. However, Tremblay gave up the chase and pulled over, allowing himself to be taken into custody.

He was found to have a suspended license with 11 scoffs on seven different dates including failure to pay a fine in the City of Lockport, failure to answer summons in the cities of North Tonawanda and Tonawanda, and the towns of Amherst and Lockport.

He was taken to the Town of Lockport court for arraignment on charges of second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, failure to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle, failure to stop at a stop sign, improper signaling, reckless driving, speeding, unlawful fleeing of a police office, and equipment violations for driving without headlights and tail lights — violations which occurred in both the Town of Lockport and the Town of Pendleton — and on an outstanding warrant. Bail was set at $250 for each the Town of Lockport and Town of Pendleton charges. He is due in the Town of Lockport this morning and in the Town of Pendleton court on Tuesday. He was transported to the Niagara County Jail without incident.
