BATAVIA, New York — A 42-year-old man has admitted he was drunk behind the wheel when he led police on a 40-mile chase in western New York last year.
The Daily News of Batavia reports (http://bit.ly/ZEHGh5 ) that Ronald Worthington of Batavia pleaded guilty Thursday in Genesee County Court to reckless endangerment, driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.
Worthington said he was drunk the night of Dec. 3 when he led police on a chase that began on the Thruway in Genesee County and continued west into neighboring Erie County. He made a U-turn at the toll barrier at Williamsville and drove east before ramming his car into a state police patrol vehicle in Batavia.
Police said Worthington reached speeds of up to 100 mph during the chase.
He's scheduled to be sentenced June 26.
