A registered sex offender has been nabbed by State Police after he led them on a chase through the northern part of Onondaga County.

Troopers say 34 year old John Minckler of Cleveland has been arrested after being accused of sexually abusing a 13 year old boy.

Minckler's car was spotted at the Denny's Restaurant in Cicero and when an officer approached his car, he put it into reverse and backed into the officer's car before taking off.

The chase went up Route 11 and then onto Interstate 481, Northern Boulevard and Thompson Road. He eluded police and they lost sight of his vehicle.

He was then spotted again by a Cicero Police officer and another chase ensued.

A short time later though, Minckler crashed his car into a couple of utility poles on Route 31 and he was taken to Upstate hospital for a shoulder injury.

Minckler has now been charged Predatory Sexual Assault, Criminal Mischief and Reckless Endangerment.
