Two men were arrested by State Police after they led troopers on a car chase that ended with a crash in Troy.

Troopers say they pulled a car over Monday afternoon in Troy with Taijon Alston behind the wheel and Justice Ross in the passenger seat. State Police say Alston drove off after troopers initially were able to pull him over.

Alston later crashed in the city of Troy and both men tried to run off but were caught by state police.

Troopers say Ross had a loaded gun with a high capacity magazine. He was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon. Troopers say he also had an active parole warrant. Ross was arraigned and taken to Rensselaer County Jail without bail.

Alston was charged with several misdemeanors and released.
