New York State Police accuse a man of damaging two police cars during a chase, then hiding from authorities in Delaware County for three hours.

Troopers say they got a report of a vehicle with multiple violations being driven by Edward Sherman on State Route 206 in Masonville shortly before 8:30 a.m. June 28.

Authorities say they chased Sherman to Randell Hill Road when he refused to pull over.  When he did stop, Troopers say Sherman intentionally backed his pickup truck into two state police cars.  He then drove off again with other patrol vehicles giving chase until he arrived at a stone quarry off Cummings Road.  He stopped, got out of the truck and ran off.

State police and a K9 unit found Sherman hiding in a field off Teed Road in Masonville three hours later.

Sherman is charged with four counts of reckless endangerment, four counts of criminal mischief and unlawfully fleeing a police officer.  He was sent to the Delaware County Jail on $30,000 bail.
