The same man who was facing charges earlier this week for driving a beaten-up car with an ax stuck in the roof while impaired has been arrested for several charges including burglary.

According to the Wyoming County Sheriff's Office, 21-year-old Jared Price was arrested on Friday when police responded after he broke a protection order. He fled the home but was found by a state trooper nearby.

The investigation that followed led to him being charged with Burglary, Criminal Contempt, and attempted petit larceny.

In addition, Price was not cooperative during his arrest, at one point kicking out the rear door window of a patrol car in an attempt to escape. As a result, he was further charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief, and attempted escape.

Police say Price also bent the rear seat in order to access the wiring.  This caused damage to the patrol vehicle in excess of $3,000, according to police. 

Price was arraigned at the Town of Warsaw Court and remanded to the Wyoming County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail and has not posted bail.

This is the fourth separate incident involving Price in the past few weeks, including the incident with the beaten-up car.
