SCHENECTADY COUNTY, N.Y. -- A short pursuit that began in Glenville ended in Schenectady with a Troy man under arrest.
This was the scene outside Mike's Hot Dogs on Green Street and Erie Boulevard in Schenectady Thursday afternoon. Police say it all started when Christopher Johnson Jr. hit a man at the Pine Ridge Trailer Park after an argument, then drove away from the scene. That man was not seriously hurt.
Police Johnson Jr. then pulled into a parking lot, where he forced a woman from the car, then continued to another parking lot, hitting a parked car, before the chase finally ended at the restaurant.
Johnson Jr. faces numerous misdemeanor and traffic charges and is also wanted on a warrant out of Albany for assault. He's being held in the Schenectady County Jail.
