A Mastic man was charged Sunday after he refused to pull over for a traffic stop and led Suffolk police on a chase before crashing into three patrol cars and a utility pole, authorities said.

Police said that, at about 12:40 a.m., a Seventh Precinct officer saw Robert Noon, 20, of Sweetbriar Drive, driving a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban erratically on Winters Drive in Mastic and attempted to pull him over.

Noon fled east on Sunrise Service Road North, then north on Barnes Road before heading south on Weeks Avenue toward a dead end street, police said. Noon then turned the vehicle around, crashed into three police cars and drove back toward Barnes Road, police said.

He eventually lost control of the vehicle on Moriches-Middle Island Road, crashed into a utility pole and fled on foot. Officers apprehended Noon near the intersection of Campbell Drive and Keller Drive, police said.

Noon was charged with three counts of third-degree criminal mischief, three counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, unlawfully fleeing a police officer, driving with a suspended license, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and various traffic violations, Suffolk County police said.

He was held on bail of $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash at his arraignment Sunday in First District Court in Central Islip.
