Man who led police on multi-jurisdiction chase sentenced to up to six years in prison
A Batavia resident arrested after leading local law enforcment on a multi-jurisdiction chase will spend three to six years in state prison following his sentencing in Genesee County Court today.
Todd Weaver, 44, of Seven Springs Road, previously admitted to a mischief charge, was also fined $1,000.
The chase began in Medina and wound onto the Tonawanda Indian Reservation where Weaver used his car to strike a Medina patrol vehicle. The patrol vehicle was disabled and the police officer lost sight of Weaver's vehicle.
Weaver was also accused of striking a mailbox on Skye Road.
His vehicle was next spotted by Batavia PD at Oak and Richmond, with Weaver then leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 50 mph through the city.
Police tried to use spike strips to stop Weaver, but he avoided them.
He eventually ran out of gas on Clinton Street Road, Stafford.
Howard you have one incorrect fact. The Medina PD vehicle was not disabled. Their Police Chief called off the pursuit. Medina PD vehicle suffered heavy damage but, was on MR Weaver's bumper the whole time.
