Pursuit on dirt bike lasts more than five miles in Yates County before ending in Schuyler

Deputies say a Rock Stream man faces a number of charges after fleeing from officers and leading them on a five-mile pursuit.

It happened Sunday when deputies attempted to stop Joshua Roth on Pre-Emption Rd. in Starkey.

Deputies said Roth ignored them and led them on a pursuit that came to a conclusion in Schuyler County.

He was arrested on several charges, including aggravated unlicensed operation. Roth faces a number of traffic violations too.
