A Clarence man is facing a slew of charges after sheriff's deputies say he led them on a car chase.
 
Deputies say they stopped 52-year-old Glenn Gafter on Transit Road in the Town of Clarence, but he took off when the responding deputy went back to her own vehicle to continue the investigation.
 
It happened early Tuesday morning just after 1 a.m.
 
The Erie County Sheriff's Office says Gafter led the deputy and two other deputies on a short chase, until he crashed into a ditch further down Transit Road.
 
Gafter is charged with unlawful fleeing the police in a vehicle, obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, reckless driving and multiple vehicle and traffic violations.
