An Ulster County man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly approached a high school girl and then followed her onto her school's campus, police said.

Ronald Camp, 45, of Saugerties, pulled up to a 17-year-old girl near Kingston High School shortly after noon, Kingston police said in a statement. The girl broke off the converstation, then went to the high school and reported the incident to a police officer.

That's when Camp allegedly drove onto the campus to approach the girl again, speeding off only when a police officer approached his car.

After a short chase, Camp was arrested on O'Reilly Street, the release said.

Camp was charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree, obstructing government administration and reckless driving, all misdemeanors, as well as trespass and several vehicle and traffic citations, police said.

He was arraigned in City Court on Tuesday, and remains in jail on $1,000 bail, $2,000 bond, with a court appearance scheduled for Thursday.
