RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Police say a Vermont man led them on high-speed chase through downtown Rutland that resulted in several damaged gravestones.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1OwHRle) 22-year-old Randall Reynolds of Pittsford pleaded innocent to charges he allegedly careened through the city Monday night at speeds topping 80 mph.

Police say they flagged down Reynold’s car because his headlights weren’t on. But instead of stopping, he drove off.

Police say he crashed into a parked tractor trailer, ran through four stop signs and eventually crashed into West Street Cemetery, destroying a fence and several Revolutionary War headstones.

Reynolds is facing a felony charge of eluding police and negligent operation of a vehicle and other offenses.

His lawyer says Reynolds “knows this was a bad decision.”
