FULTON — A Liverpool man was charged Monday night with an eye-popping amount of traffic violations after leading deputies on a brief chase from Fulton, into the city of Oswego and culminating in Volney, according to the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office. 

Michael J. Rubino, 23, of Liverpool,  was one of two motorcycle operators originally stopped by sheriff’s deputies as they were traveling into the city of Oswego, deputies said. 

Rubino, who operated a 2016 Kawasaki sports-style motorcycle, failed to comply with traffic stop, ensuing a vehicle pursuit into the Port City, where he racked up “35 violations,” according to police. 

The chase finally ceased when Rubino attempted to return to Fulton and made a turn on Vacuum Cooler Drive, which deputies described as a “dead end road.”

Among Rubino's 35 charges are fleeing from an officer, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, three counts of failure to comply, unlawful possession of marijuana, motor vehicle license violation, three counts of reckless driving, three counts of speed unreasonable and prudent, five counts of speed in zone, speed over 55mph, three counts of improper passing, eight counts of disobey red light and three counts of disobey traffic control device.

Rubino was arraigned in Scriba Town Court and remanded to Oswego County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to answer to the charges in Volney Town Court on Aug. 19 and Aug. 26., as well as Oswego City Court on Aug. 22 and Scriba Town Court on Aug. 29.
