POLICE

Dennis J. L. Lescault, 28, of Lake Luzerne, was charged in Saratoga Springs with three felonies: attempted assault with intent to cause injury to officer, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, and the misdemeanors: obstruct governmental administration; reckless endangerment; unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle; aggravated unlicensed operation, and reckless driving. The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office added additional charges: AUO in the first-degree, DWAI, unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, and numerous vehicle and traffic law infractions. The Saratoga Springs incident took place about 7 a.m. on Nov. 26, when a city Police Department officer on patrol conducted a traffic stop on Spring Street, authorities said. As the officer approached the vehicle on foot, it quickly accelerated and turned southbound onto Circular Street, onto Whitney Place and then entered the Greenridge Cemetery. As the vehicle attempted to exit the cemetery, it allegedly rammed the driver’s side of a marked Saratoga Springs Police Department car which had its emergency lights on. The officer of the rammed car was not injured. The vehicle continued onto roads in the southeast area of Saratoga Springs and then into the Town of Malta. Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office officers attempted to stop the vehicle for a failure to signal lane changes on I-87 northbound in the Town of Malta. The driver is accused of then leading police on a pursuit that continued after it exited I-87 at Exit 15, and north on New York State Route 50, and eventually south on Route 9 where the operator was apprehended after a short foot chase. Lescault was arraigned on city charges on December 2 and sent to Saratoga County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash, or $30,000 bond.
