A man who thought he was having a heart attack took police on a high-speed chase on Route 59 Thursday night.
Police say at 817 p.m. a US Forest Service Law Enforcement Officer was checking on a motorist parked along the road near Rimrock and found 30-year-old David Miller of Johnsonburg “in an excited state,” and learned that he thought he was having a heart attack.
The officer saw what he believed to be drug paraphernalia in the vehicle and, while he was calling for help, Miller drove away toward Warren, driving at speeds up to 85 mph. State police stopped Miller just east of Route 6.
Miller was taken into custody without further incident. He was taken to Warren General Hospital for treatment after complaining of difficulty breathing and chest pains, and police said charges are pending the outcomes of blood tests.
