Man arrested after chase, crash in FraminghamMetroWest Daily News, Framingham, Mass. — Norman Miller MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, Mass.
June 30-- Jun. 30--FRAMINGHAM -- A local man led police on a brief chase Monday before crashing his car into two parked vehicles, authorities said.
Police arrested Mustafa Kasin, 19, after the 3:12 p.m. incident, police spokeswoman Lt. Patricia Grigas said on Tuesday.
Police initially went to Old Connecticut Path after a report of a suspicious motor vehicle. According to police radio reports, a witness saw two groups of people passing a shotgun around in the parking lot. Grigas said there was no shotgun.
When officers arrived, Kasin sped away.
"(He) fled down Old Connecticut Path to the Stop & Shop parking lot (and) raced around the lot looking for another exit," Grigas said.
The car turned onto Concord Street and then crashed into two parked cars near Royce Road, Grigas said. No one was injured.
Police arrested the driver, Kasin, of 89A Beaver Park Road, and charged him with driving to endanger and failing to stop for police. Police also cited him for a marked-lanes violation, a red-light violation and speeding.
Kasin is already facing charges in Framingham from an incident on June 4. On that day, authorities said he shot another man in the eye with a paintball gun and fired at several vehicles. He also had marijuana packaged for distribution, authorities said.
In that incident, police charged Kasin with aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; and defacement of property.
He was released without bail after that incident. He is due back in court on Sept. 8 for that case.
Arraignment results for Monday's incident were not available on Tuesday.
