WESTVILLE. A Malone man was arrested after fleeing police who tried to pull him over for going 95-mph in a 55-mph zone in Fort Covington.

State police say they charged Anthony K. Walker, 35, with third-degree unlawfully fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, reckless driving and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.

Troopers say around 8:55 p.m. on Dec. 8, they tried to pull over the vehicle Walker was driving. He allegedly “failed to pull over and drove in a reckless manner, continuing into the town of Westville,” police said.

Walker then turned onto county Route 20, exited the roadway, and ran through a yard off of county Route 20, driving back onto the roadway, police said. He then continued down the county highway “at a high rate of speed,” police said.

Walker eventually turned into the Franklin County landfill, turned left into a field, before the gate, and struck a ditch, troopers said. Walker then fled on foot and was apprehended after a brief struggle with troopers, state police said.

He was charged and released with appearance tickets for Westville Town Court, police said.

United States Border Patrol assisted state troopers.
