A Niagara Falls man seen driving with a handgun led Falls police on a wild chase Saturday night along North Avenue that ended when he crashed into a tree.
19-year-old Christopher W. Cessna-Carter of Jerauld Avenue faces numerous charges, including criminal possession of a weapon.
He was at about 8:30 Saturday night without a seatbelt on when police pulled him over. He pulled over, but when police got out of their car, he sped off.
Cessna-Carter was going twice the speed limit down North.
He tried to make a sharp turn onto 24th and lost control, smashing into the tree.
