CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man accused of backing into a police cruiser that led to a police chase has pleaded not guilty.

Wymann Wiggins, of Amytivile, pleaded not guilty to charges of resisting arrest, criminal mischief and other charges at his arraignment Sunday.

The Saturday incident led to a police chase from Commack to Huntington Station.

It began after police pulled Wiggins over in a parking lot in Commack for driving erratically.

They say he backed his vehicle repeatedly into a police cruiser before fleeing.

Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/1wPFOgT ) says police used a spike strip to puncture his tires in Commack but the car kept going before crashing in Huntington Station. Police say the suspect ran but was captured by officers in pursuit.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Wiggins had a lawyer.
