Memorial Day Moped Spree..........

.....................results in arrest!

PORTSMOUTH — A Fall River man was arrested on a flurry of charges after an unsuccessful attempt to flee from police on an stolen moped. The off-roading rampage began Monday, May 30 on West Main Road where police were dispatched to Connor's Funeral Home for a suspicious man described as drunk and shirtless with lacerations. It was there that he fled from police, heading northbound on Route 24.

Within minutes police located the man out at the point at Cedar Island. There they arrested Nicholas A. Silva, 18, of Fall River, on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, reckless driving, resisting arrest and possession of a weapon.
Mr. Silva tried to lose police by veering off route 24 on the moped — a vehicle believed to be taken from Scooter World in Newport. He navigated through narrow dirt paths in a partially wooded Cedar Island before ditching the bike in an attempt to escape on foot as he headed toward the point.

"It was a pursuit but it was a very slow moving pursuit," said Deputy Chief Lance Hebert.


This is just too funny.
