NAPOLI, N.Y., June 3 (UPI) -- Sheriff's deputies in Cattaraugus County, N.Y., said a man driving a horse and buggy led them on a three-mile pursuit before escaping on foot.

Deputies said they tried to stop the buggy in Napoli while investigating reports of underage drinking but the driver steered the vehicle through fields and woods before jumping down from the buggy and evading deputies on foot, the Buffalo (N.Y.) News reported Wednesday.

Investigators said deputies were unable to find the driver at the scene but a 20-year-old man was later arrested after deputies brought the horse and buggy to a nearby home.

Jonas Hershberger, 20, was charged with overdriving of animals, reckless endangerment and obstructing governmental administration. He was jailed in lieu of $250 bail.
