A Canandaigua man was arrested after fleeing police during an investigation into a roadside domestic incident.
Deputies say that Paul Scott Davis, 28, of Canandaigua was found to be driving with a suspending license. Deputies asked Davis to give them the keys to his vehicle, which he did before fleeing the scene. Davis allegedly took off on foot, running northbound on County Road 10, crossing the highway against traffic and into the front lawn of the fairgrounds.
Deputies threatened to tase Davis, which allowed authorities with enough time to capture him – placing him under arrest. Investigators point out that Davis began resisting arrest again when he was stopped and handcuffed the second time.
He was ultimately taken into custody, according to deputies, and charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, resisting arrested and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. The defendant was arraigned in Hopewell Town Court and will answer the charges at a later date.
He was committed to the Ontario County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 insurance bond.
