Police: Rehoboth Teen Flees at 111 MPH, Drives Over Lawn
Rehoboth Police say a local teen on Friday night led them on a high-speed chase before being arrested in the front yard of a Dighton home.
At around 8:44 p.m., Sgt. James Casey was driving westbound on Winthrop St. (Rt. 44) and observed a gray Honda Accord with Massachusetts plates traveling eastbound at an extremely high rate of speed, according to a media release from the Rehoboth Police Department.
Sgt. Casey confirmed via a mounted radar unit that the vehicle was traveling 111 mph in a 50 mph zone, according to police. He reportedly tried to pull the vehicle over and a short chase ensued.
The chase came to an end when the gray Honda attempted to turn into the driveway of a residence in Dighton, missed the driveway, and drove over the front lawn, police said.
The operator of the vehicle was identified as 19-year-old Raymond Zincone Jr. of Rehoboth. Patrol Officer Mark Wetherell responded to the location and Zincone was taken into custody without incident, transported to the station, and booked.
Zincone was released on personal recognizance and scheduled to appear in Taunton District Court on June 16. He was charged with failure to stop for police, operation of a motor vehicle as to endanger and speeding.
