On June 29th, 2018 at about 5:51 PM, the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office responded to 1163 Taughannock Blvd in the Town of Ulysses for a property damage motor vehicle crash. A witness reported observing the driver exit the moving vehicle through a window before it crashed. She then stoodby near the driver until law enforcement arrived on scene.

Upon arrival, deputies located the vehicle in question impacted into a tree and identified the driver as MASON A BOWEN (Age 21 of Phleps, NY). BOWEN exhibited erratic behavior and appeared to be under the influence of some type of drug. BOWEN began punching and kicking at officers on scene and was subsequently tasered. After the struggle, BOWEN was secured in handcuffs but still continued to kick deputies. He was transported to Cayuga Medical Center for treatment and later released. BOWEN was charged with Resisting Arrest, Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, No hands on wheel, Reckless Driving, Unattended Vehicle, Failed to Use Designated Lane, Moved From Lane Unsafely, and No Seat-belt. He was released with an appearance ticket and is set to appear in the Town of Ulysses Court on July 23rd, 2018 at 6:00 PM.
