A husband and wife from York are facing a number of charges after a lengthy car chase involving Livingston County Sheriff's deputies. Livingston County Sheriff's deputies said  it happened on Sunday around 7:05 a.m. Deputies said they spotted a car on Main Street in York being driven by 44-year-old Jason Torregrossa and they knew he did not have a valid driver's license.
