DEKALB, N.Y. (AP) — A 22-year-old man remains in a northern New York jail after authorities say he led state troopers on a chase during which his motorcycle reached 120 mph.

State police say troopers attempted to pull over Robert Baker of Winthrop on Sunday morning after clocking him driving more than 100 mph in a 55 mph zone in the rural St. Lawrence County town of DeKalb.

Police say he passed vehicles in no passing zones, forcing some of the drivers off the road.

Troopers say Baker's bike hit 120 mph before it ran out of gas and he was taken into custody.

Baker was charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer and ticketed for numerous vehicle and traffic violations.

He remains in the county jail Wednesday. It couldn't be determined if he has a lawyer.
