ST. REGIS FALLS, N.Y. - A driver of an ATV tried to flee police Saturday night in St. Regis Falls. He was driving south on Main Street at around midnight. 

A press release says Charles Reagan, 37, of Avon, Conn., accelerated and fled south on Route 458 after a New York State trooper turned his emergency lights on. Reagan continued to drive the ATV for two miles, until he tried to exit the road and stopped his ATV. The trooper was then able to take Reagan in custody after a brief struggle.

Police say Reagan was operating the ATV while intoxicated. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.15%.

Reagan was charged with driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest, and 3rd degree fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle. He was also issued a ticket for unregistered ATV, uninsured ATV, 3rd degree aggravated unlicensed operation, operating an ATV on a roadway, reckless driving on an ATV, failure to keep right, and speed in zone. 

Reagan was arraigned in the town of Waverly Court. He was remanded to the Franklin County Jail in lieu of $1,500 cash bail or $3,000 bond. He is due back in court at the end of April.
