Domestic Dispute Turns Into Police Chase On Thruway

Kristine Bellino, WIBX

A domestic dispute in Rome eventually led to a police chase along the New York State Thruway.

Last night at around 8:15, Rome Police were alerted to an incident on West Thomas Street. Before officers arrived, Joshua Morgan, 22, allegedly threatened to hurt himself or others, then fled the home in a pick-up truck.

Police followed Morgan’s vehicle along Thomas Street and attempted to stop him, but he kept traveling West Thomas Street. Morgan led officers onto Madison Street, then Erie Blvd., before entering onto Route 365 and onto the Thruway from the Verona exit.

After attempts to reach Morgan via cell phone failed, State police tried spike strips to stop his vehicle. He avoided the first two sets of strips, but was stopped by the third, and was arrested by Rome and State Police.

Morgan was charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer and issued several traffic citations.
