YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - The operator of a 30-foot catamaran is accused of leading police on a 100 mph chase from the Tappan Zee Bridge to Yonkers.

Police say a police boat had tried to stop Marcus Lomghitano from going more than 5 mph in the regulated zone near the bridge construction area on Sunday. But instead, police say, he sped off.

The Journal News (https://lohud.us/1JHmIVn ) says a second police boat eventually joined the chase and the catamaran was intercepted as it arrived in Yonkers.

The Highland Mills, New York, resident was charged with reckless operation, failure to obey a police officer and operating an unregistered vessel. He was released pending a Sept. 25 court appearance in Greenburgh.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Lomghitano had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
