UNADILLA – An ATV rider was issued more than a dozen tickets after he allegedly passed an ambulance with lights flashing along a solid yellow line, then tried to elude troopers who pursued him, according to a press release from Troop C, Sidney.

In the course of the chase, James T. Joyce, 24, Colesville, Broome County, the ATV almost hit a pedestrian, troopers alleged.

The chase continued into the Town of Bainbridge, and Joyce steered his ATV onto a railroad track, attempted to elude the officers, but the vehicle tipped over while he tried to steer it back onto the roadway, and he was caught, the report said.

He was charged with unlawfully fleeing police and reckless endangerment.  Appearing in Bainbridge Town Court, he was jailed on $2,500 bail of $5,000 bond, and is due back in court July 24.
