Reckless Driving:

JESSE E. BURNS
WARSAW — A town man is facing multiple charges after allegedly fleeing from deputies Monday on an all-terrain vehicle. Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies observed three people riding a red Suzuki ATV on Crist Road. None were allegedly wearing helmets.

The ATV fled northbound at a high rate of speed when deputies activated their patrol car’s emergency lights. The deputies did not pursue, but observed the ATV flee into a wooded area. The deputies entered the area on foot and found the ATV abandoned.

Further investigation allegedly revealed Jesse E. Burns, 28, of Warsaw had been the driver. Deputies said his passengers were determined to have been two girls ages 12 and 14 years old. Burns was located at a Crist road residence and taken into custody. He was allegedly found to have been drinking alcohol and failed field sobriety tests.

Burns was charged with two counts each of felony aggravated DWI with a child in the vehicle, second-degree reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child, and ATV passenger less than 16 years old without a helmet.

He was also charged with single counts of DWI, driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more, driving an ATV at a speed not reasonable and prudent, driving an ATV without a helmet, driving an unregistered ATV, driving an uninsured ATV, driving an ATV on a public highway, an inadequate ATV muffler violation, and failure to comply with an unlawful order while driving an ATV.

Burns was processed at the Sheriff’s Office and released to a sober third party. He is to appear June 14 in Town Court.
