Livingston County Sheriff's deputies say they tased a man after a traffic stop.
Livingston County Sheriff's deputies say they tased a man after a traffic stop -- he pulled out the taser probe -- and led deputies on a chase that ended in Rochester.
Deputies say Jason Torregrossa, 44, and his wife, Amber Torregrossa, 42, were uncooperative after they were pulled over on Main Street in the town of York just after 7 a.m. on Saturday.
Deputies say Jason was driving without a license and he was wanted on a warrant out of Rochester for driving without a license.
When a deputy pulled them over, the couple tried to switch seats. That's when deputies say Amber refused to shut the car off and put it in park and Jason refused to get out of the car.
Jason was given lawful orders and continued to refuse those orders. The deputy then tased Jason while he was still in the car but he was able to remove the taser probe and then able to get back behind the wheel.
The two then sped away, leading deputies on a chase from York through Caledonia and into Monroe County.
The pursuit lasted over 35 minutes and ended in the City of Rochester when Jason rear-ended another vehicle on Hollenbeck Street. No injuries were reported from the collision.
Jason then fled on foot before the deputies were able to tase him again and apprehend him. Deputies say he had a hypodermic needle and a rubber tie off in his hands.
Amber was arrested and charged with felony facilitating aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree and obstruction of governmental administration in the second degree.
Jason was arrested and charged with felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree as his license had been suspended or revoked 34 times, unlawful fleeing a police officer, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, reckless driving, and numerous violations.
Jason was remanded to the Livingston County Jail on $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond.
Amber was also remanded to jail on $3,000 cash or $6,000 bond.
