Man Charged After 86-Mile Car Chase from Utica to Blue Mountain Lake

A Rochester-area man is under arrest but not in jail, after allegedly leading Central New York police agencies on an 86-mile car chase through three counties Wednesday morning.

Police say 29-year-old Eric Baker left McPike Addiction Treatment Center in West Utica, right before the chase, which started in Utica after the vehicle was stolen from a woman at a nearby gas station.

The chase then ended in Blue Mountain Lake.

Baker faces several charges, including reckless endangerment and unlawfully fleeing a police officer.
