COEYMANS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a man beat up his ex-girlfriend before stealing her boat and leading a chase down the Hudson River near Albany.

The Times-Union reports (https://bit.ly/1mldfGq ) 37-year-old Garret Auer is being held without bail after arraignment Saturday.

He’s charged with criminal contempt, grand larceny, resisting arrest, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon.
