SYD­NEY — A Syd­ney man charged in con­nec­tion with a po­lice chase that ended with the sus­pect ve­hi­cle crash­ing into a home will be back in court Aug. 17 to en­ter pleas. Dar­ren James Clarke, 34, of Cot­tage Road was charged last week in con­nec­tion with lead­ing po­lice on a chase in Syd­ney on Wed­nes­day that re­sulted in ex­ten­sive dam­age to a home and ve­hi­cles. Clarke is charged with five counts of mis­chief in­volv­ing prop­erty dam­age, of which three counts al­lege dam­ages over $5,000 each, as well as sin­gle counts of evad­ing po­lice, as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer, im­paired driv­ing, dan­ger­ous driv­ing and breach­ing a court or­der. Clarke con­tin­ues to be on re­mand.

He was sen­tenced for be­ing an ac­ces­sory af­ter the fact.
