McDonough Man Crashes While Trying to Outrun Deputies
Chenango County Sheriff’s Deputies say a Town of McDonough man tried to outrun them March 22.
Officials say a Deputy attempted to stop 21 year old Cody Shamp for going 50 miles an hour in a 30 mile an hour zone when he allegedly ignored the officer’s emergency lights and siren and took off, driving even faster.
Authorities say Shamp was driving at speeds at over 85 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone before driving onto a seasonal roadway where he lost control and crashed into a ditch.
He’s charged with unlawful fleeing a police officer and reckless endangerment as well as several vehicle and traffic law violations.
He was sent to the Chenango County Jail on $10,000 bail.
