A Mayville teenager is facing charges for taking sheriff’s deputies on a chase early Saturday morning.

16-year-old Derek Pratt allegedly took deputies on a 10-minute chase through the Town of Chautauqua after they tried to stop him for speeding. Deputies stopped chasing Pratt when he went off the road through a field and onto a snowmobile trail in a wooded area. Deputies stopped the pursuit to prevent damage to the patrol vehicle. They found Pratt’s vehicle a short time later disabled on the trail.

Pratt surrendered and was charged with Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a motor vehicle, Reckless Driving, Driving without a license, and numerous traffic violations. He was released to the custody of his mother and will appear in Chautauqua Town Court later.
