MEDINA – A Medina man faces felony charges by the State Police following a three-county chase a week ago.

Jessy L. Miller, 32, has been charged with reckless endangerment in the 1st degree, fleeing a police officer in a vehicle in the 3rd degree, and aggravated unlicensed operation in the first degree.

Miller was arrested on Sunday after he was released from the hospital after being treated for his injuries following a car crash in the chase. He was arraigned in Alabama Town Court and is being held in the Genesee County Jail.

Police first responded to Miller in Medina, when he allegedly struck a house after doing doughnuts in a yard. Miller fled the area in his SUV and was pursed by Medina police.

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office joined the pursuit as Miller headed south into Genesee County.

State Police stopped Miller’s vehicle on Judge Road in Alabama. Miller and a female passenger were ordered to get out of the vehicle. The female got out of the vehicle and Miller put the SUV into reverse and the female was struck with the open door. Miller then went forward with the vehicle and the female was struck again by the door, the Video News Service is reporting.

After the incident, the female was transported to ECMC by ambulance for her injuries.

The chase ended in Niagara County when Miller was found in a parking lot in Middleport after crashing his vehicle. Miller was then taken to the hospital for his injuries.

He may face additional charges in Orleans and Niagara counties.

Miller recently faced a charge of first-degree assault in Orleans County after he allegedly beat up another person and then left the scene without calling for an ambulance. That incident was on Dec. 17, 2016 during a party at Ricky Place in Medina.
