A juvenile sustained minor injuries after being pursued by police through four local communities on Thursday, March 9.
The youth, not being identified by police, suffered minor injuries when he laid the motorcycle down, according to a report from Hanson Police.
He will be summoned into Plymouth District Court at a later date for operating to endanger, failure to stop for a police officer, trespassing, resisting arrest and numerous motor vehicle charges.
Whitman Police initiated the pursuit of the male juvenile at 10:08 a.m., Thursday morning, March 9.
The motorcycle was an off road vehicle with no license plates. The operator failed to stop for the Whitman Police and the vehicle proceeded into Hanson on Route 58 and Whitman police called off their pursuit. Hanson Police observed the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle on Liberty Street/Route 58. The operator was traveling at approximately 45 mph and again failed to stop. Hanson Police stopped the pursuit when the motorcycle turned onto the train tracks near Cranland Airport and proceeded into Halifax, according to police.
Hanson and Halifax Police attempted to again stop the motorcycle near the Halifax T station. The operator again fled on Route 36 to Route 106 and into Plympton.
Plympton, Hanson, and Halifax officers stopped the vehicle in Plympton at the intersection of Maple and Main Streets.
The individual did not immediately surrender to officers and was combative, the report stated. Hanson officers deployed a Taser and subdued him.
The young man was taken to Jordan Hospital by Plympton Fire Department ambulance due to what were described as health issues unrelated to the officers’ use of force.
