Clinton Man Leads Police on 5 Mile Car Chase in Worcester

Thursday, September 22, 2016

 

Richard Santiago, 46, of Clinton was arrested by Worcester Police on Wednesday morning after leading officers on a 5 mile car chase that started at Foster and Green Streets. The car Santiago was driving was stolen from a Worcester address. 

Santiago and charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, assault and battery on a Police officer, failure to stop for the police, driving with a suspended license, as well as other Motor Vehicle offenses.

The Incident 

On Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at approximately 12:25 AM, a Worcester Police officer on patrol watched a grey Mazda sedan travel through a red light at Foster and Green Streets without slowing down or stopping. The officer activated his lights and sirens in an attempt to stop the car, but it continued without stopping. The officer watched the car engage in numerous motor vehicle violations, traveling through stop signs and bouncing off of curbs as it drove. Police tried to stop the vehicle for a distance of approximately 5 miles.

Eventually, the suspect car crashed into a guardrail on Main Street by Ludlow Street, which disabled the car and caused the air bag to deploy. 

Police approached the driver to check on him. As they approached, the driver, identified as Richard Santiago, 46, of 8 Longedge Road, Clinton MA, started swearing at officers and refused to show officers his hands or exit the car. Officers had to physically remove Santiago from the vehicle.

Once he was removed, Santiago began fighting with officers, violently resisting attempts to be placed into handcuffs. After a violent struggle, officers were able to place Santiago into handcuffs.

Santiago refused to enter the police car for transportation, and officers had to physically pick Santiago up and carry him. In the process of placing him in the car,  Santiago began spitting at officers. Eventually, officers were able to subdue and transport him to the station for processing.

Further investigation revealed that the car was stolen earlier in the day from a Worcester address.
