ALBANY — A Greene County woman was arrested on multiple charges following a police pursuit in the city of Albany, Kerra M. Burns, public information officer for state police Troop G, said Thursday.
Jasmine N. Curry, 29, of Catskill was charged with third-degree fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, all class A misdemeanors, and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operator, a class U misdemeanor, Burns said.
On Saturday, at about 11 a.m., troopers attempted to stop a car driven by Curry on Interstate 90 for vehicle and traffic violations, Burns said. Curry refused to comply with police attempts to get her to pull over and a vehicle pursuit began.
The pursuit left I-90 at Exit 6 and continued on Route 9 south to Northern Boulevard, Burns said. Curry then turned left on Livingston Avenue and continued for a block.
The vehicle pursuit ended at the intersection of Lark Street when Curry struck a utility pole, Burns said. Curry then attempted to flee the scene on foot. She was caught by police after a short chase. When Curry was taken into custody, she physically resisted, Burns said.
National Grid was notified of the damage to the pole.
Curry was brought to the Troop G barracks and was processed. She was given appearance tickets for Albany City Court for June 28.
