ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — An Albany man was arrested on Monday. Michael Miller, 31, faces multiple charges including criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a weapon.

Deputies said that they tried to pull over a car—later identified as being driven by Miller—for speeding on Monday, but that he sped up once they turned their emergency lights on. They said that he wouldn’t yield the right of way to other cars, and hit one.
