TEEN ARRESTED AFTER SPEEDING CHASE

A teen-ager was arrested late Friday after he led police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash, then pointed a gun at a police officer but dropped it.

Police were called at about 11 p.m. Friday to a home at 3469 Old Fluvanna Road to investigate a complaint about Keith L. Robbins, 17, of that address.

But Robbins was not there. A short time later, an officer spotted his car at a traffic light at Fluvanna Avenue and Washington Street in Jamestown.

Police tried to stop Robbins, but he sped away onto Strunk Road and then onto the Southern Tier Expressway. The chase continued at speeds of up to 100 mph.

When Robbins tried to exit at Falconer, police said, he lost control of his car, and it ran through a snowbank, then crashed into a guardrail.

After the accident, Robbins pointed a 12-gauge shotgun at the officer but dropped it and was arrested on charges of menacing, speeding, failure to comply, failure to keep right and reckless driving.

He was treated in WCA Hospital and released.
