On December 1, 2022, at approximately 1:04 p.m., New York State Police arrested Brooks Anderson, age 73 of Albany, NY for the misdemeanor of Unlawfully Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle. 

A trooper on the TIM (Traffic Incident Management) Unit was monitoring traffic on Interstate 88 in the town Worcester when he observed a minivan traveling westbound at a high rate of speed.  The trooper attempted to initiate a traffic stop but the operator of the vehicle failed to comply and accelerated.  He continued to fail to comply through a work zone in the town of Maryland then continued at a high rate of speed on I-88 through the town of Milford, city of Oneonta and the town of Oneonta. 

He was ultimately in boxed by vehicles and stopped but refused to exit the vehicle.  Anderson was ultimately taken into custody and transported to SP Oneonta where he was processed. 

Anderson was issued an appearance ticket to the Worcester Town Court on December 20, 2022.
