PHILLIPS — An Avon man told a Franklin County deputy Thursday that he didn’t stop for 4 miles because he wanted to get home first and he didn’t have his driver’s license on him, Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said Friday.

Zebulen Lariviere, 20, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of driving to endanger and failure to stop for an officer, Nichols said.

Cpl. Nate Reid tried to stop Lariviere because he was going 60 mph in a 50-mph zone on Salem Road in Salem Township, the sheriff said. Reid turned on his cruiser lights and siren but the vehicle kept going. It finally stopped on Bridge Street in Phillips, Nichols said.

Lariviere told Reid he didn’t stop because he thought he was going to be in trouble for not having his driver’s license on him, Nichols said.

There were three passengers in the vehicle. Lariviere’s 14-year-old sibling told Reid he was scared because of the way his brother was driving, he said.

Lariviere was released from the Franklin County Jail in Farmington on $3,000 unsecured bail. He is scheduled to appear June 3 in Farmington District Court.
