A 44-year-old Syracuse man is facing a slew of charges after he reportedly led police on a chase overnight. Lucious Paul Jr., of 402 Hoefler St., is facing charges including driving while intoxicated, third-degree aggravated unauthorized operation and failure to comply, according to police reports.
The incident began when police, who had been on the look out for Paul, received information that the suspect was driving a 2006 Ford Fusion in the area of Hoefler and Bellevue Avenue, according to the report, which indicated that Paul was being sought on a warrant for menacing and criminal possession of a weapon related to an incident last Sunday.
The suspect led police mostly along Bellevue until he crashed into a telephone pole along the 3000 block of Bellevue near Onondaga Boulevard. The suspect was transported to University Hospital for treatment of injuries that included a bloody nose, according to the report.
