SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Nearly a year after he allegedly caused trouble in the village, police in Scarsdale arrested a Bronx teenager on a warrant after he allegedly fled from officers attempting to stop him last July.

Shortly before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, the department was notified by the New York Police Department that 19-year-old Michael Mier, who had an active warrant in Scarsdale, had been taken into custody.

Later that day, two officers were sent to the Bronx Criminal Court House to pick up Mier, who had been arraigned on a different charge and released on his own recognizance. Mier was taken into custody and charged with a felony count of criminal mischief, and two counts each of reckless driving and unlawful fleeing from a police officer in a motor vehicle, both misdemeanors.

According to Scarsdale Police Det. Sgt. James Newman, the charges stem from an incident on July 28 last year, when officers attempted to pull Mier over and he fled, doing damage to public and private property in the process.

Mier was arraigned in Scarsdale and remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $1,500 cash bail or $2,500 bond.
