A Cooperstown man was arrested early Friday morning on Pope Road in the town of Otsego after a 40-minute high-speed chase, according to Investigator Joseph Valentine of the state police at Richfield Springs.

Kenneth Carson, 22, of Continental Avenue, was charged with reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, unlawfully fleeing police and resisting arrest, Valentine said.

``The chase started on Route 20 in West Winfield, and speeds ranged from 35 to 110 miles per hour,'' Valentine said.

Carson was driving a 1998 Jeep Cherokee.

Carson, who was arrested by Trooper Steve Griffiths, was arraigned before Richfield Town Justice John DeFino and jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail to await further court action.
