(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A 22-year-old Georgetown man was
arrested Sunday morning after he failed to stop his motorcycle when an officer
tried to pull him over and then took off running into the woods.
According to Massachusetts State Police, Scott Hansen was driving his motorcycle in excess of 95 mph eastbound on Route 90 in Hopkinton around 8:55 a.m. A trooper attempted to stop Hanson, but the suspect did not stop.
A short time later, Hansen pulled off into the breakdown lane, dropped the motorcycle on the ground, and ran off into the woods after jumping a fence.
The trooper notified the Wayland, Weston, and Natick Police
Departments and followed Hanson into the woods.
Hansen was spotted numerous times running through the woods and into Nonesuch Campground in Natick.
Over the next hour and a half, Hansen ran through
several neighborhoods and through some water in Natick before he was spotted on Oak Hill Road. He
was taken into custody on Frost
Road and Winter Street.
Hansen reportedly told police that he was unsure why he did not stop. He is expected to appear in Framingham District Court on Tuesday for his arraignment.
