Man accused of attempted murder of Trooper

Yates, N.Y. - An Orleans County man is facing attempted murder charges.

Police say he nearly ran over a New York State trooper.

The trooper tried to pull over Carlos Botello of Kendall around 8 p.m. Tuesday night in the town of Yates.

That's when Botello fled, according to police.

But, police say he was stopped a few minutes later and as the trooper approached the car, he shifted into reverse and accelerated back.

With a quick sidestep, the officer was not hurt.  He caught up with Botello who had crashed his car in a field.

Botello is being held on $250,000 bail.
