SHERMAN – Two people from Erie are facing charges after leading police on a high speed chase Saturday.
Chautauqua County Sheriff deputies say 48-year-old William Lisek and 36-year-old Shaline Pepperman were listed on Erie Top Ten most wanted. When police spotted their car in Erie, they made a break for the state line. Once in New York, state troopers and Chautauqua County deputies stepped in to help.
At one point, the suspect’s vehicle spun out of control and Lisek began driving in the wrong direction on I-86. A Pennsylvania state trooper was eventually able to hit the fleeing vehicle, ending the chase.
No one involved appears to be seriously hurt.
Lisek is charged with failing to comply with police, reckless driving, speeding over 100 miles per hour, and more. Charges are pending for Pepperman.
They are both being held and are due back in the Town of Sherman Court at a later date.
