An Alden man faces dozens of traffic violations after leading Depew and Lancaster police officers on a high-speed chase early Saturday.

Derrick P. Campbell, 22, was arrested after a chase through Lancaster and Depew, police said. He was arraigned before Village of Depew Justice Gordon Willis, who set bail at $10,000 cash, or $75,000 bond, and remanded Campbell to Erie County Holding Center.

Campbell, police said, also faces criminal charges after he allegedly attempted to drive his vehicle into the path of a Depew police cruiser. Officer James Refermat was able to take evasive actions to avoid being struck head-on, police added.

Initially, police said they had attempted to stop a 2001 Subaru Forester on Transit Road near Broadway for speeding at 1:45 a.m.
