Upon approaching the car the officers began to speak with the driver when he suddenly accelerated and sped out of the lot. Officers Robidoux and Pacheco pursued the suspect in their cruisers with lights and sirens on.

The car fled onto Cranberry Highway, went through the lot of Five Star gas, and then turned onto Main Street at a high rate of speed. Officer Blaise Lalli who was in the area of the Decas School attempted to intercept the suspect however was forced to abruptly pull off the road, where he struck the sign for the American Legion Hall damaging his cruiser, and the sign as well.

Officers continued after the car onto Fearing Hill Road, where it pulled into the driveway of house number 64, and came to a stop. The suspect stepped from the car with his arms partially raised, but was on the phone and refused to go the ground as ordered by the officers. He was then secured in handcuffs by Officers Robidoux and Lalli.

Jarret J. Galloway, 27, of West Wareham was arrested and charged with the following:

1. Failure to stop for police
2. Operating to endanger
3. Marked lanes violation
4. Stop sign violation
5. Speeding

Detectives are investigating the incident further and additional charges are possible.

Acting Chief of Police John Walcek said, “We have a suspect who had zero regard for the safety of the public by driving in a dangerous manner refusing to stop for the police. Thankfully there were no injuries.”
