The Times Herald reports that 53 year-old Paul Koksvik allegedly lead police on a high speed chase in Ulster County. Police say the chase began on Route 28 and finally ended in the Town of Olive Wednesday afternoon

Koksvik reportedly ran as a Libertarian though his name did not appear on the ballot. Also, according to the Orange County Board of Elections, he received only one write-in vote.

So how did this all start?

Police said Koksvik was traveling southbound in the northbound lane of the NY Thruway when he exited the Thruway at the Kingston exit.  From there, Koksvik headed west on Route 28

Authorities said they attempted to stop him in the Town of Ulster, but he sped off and continued west on Route 28. The chase was far from over as police chased the would-be politician through the towns of Ulster, Kingston, Hurley, and then into the Town of Olive  - where he was finally arrested.

State police say Koksvik was charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer and resisting arrest, and was arraigned in Olive Town Court.

An eye witness calling WPDH's Whole Lotta Lunch saw the chase as it happened on Route 28.
