A Jamestown man who led police on a multi-state pursuit Tuesday is facing a host of charges.

Officers with the Jamestown Police Department attempted to stop 39-year-old Larry L. Hicks around 3:40 p.m. in the area of Arnold and Maple streets. Hicks, who was driving a gray BMW, took off, leading officers from the city to Frewsburg and shortly thereafter into Pennsylvania.

The pursuit went from Russell, Pa., to Sugar Grove, Pa., in Warren County before heading north back into New York.

Officers from the Lakewood-Busti Police Department and Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office joined the chase.

Spike trips were deployed by Lakewood-Busti officers, and the vehicle eventually came to a stop on Big Tree Road, near Cowing Road, in the town of Busti.
