CRASHED INTO BUTLER CIRCLE
A Brockton man was arrested on Monday, June 26, after he and two other men led police on a high-speed chase through the streets of Revere – with the one man being caught when he drove through the Butler Circle center-span and crashed the cycle.
Around 11:42 p.m., police on patrol encountered three motorcycles on Park Avenue going at a very high rate of speed and turning on Broadway, then heading up Central Avenue.
Police pursued, but with the high rates of speed, they didn’t chase the fleeing motorcycles. However, they did continue in their direction to monitor where they were going.
It was estimated the motorcycles were going more than 60 mph on the city streets.
At Mahoney Circle, two of the cycles headed elsewhere and made good their escape.
One cycle continued onto American Legion Highway towards Butler Circle.
At the Circle, the cycle went straight into the middle, jumping the curb and crashing the bike. The driver attempted to pick up the bike and make a U-turn to get away, but Police were quickly on the scene and handcuffed him before he could get away.
The suspect, remarkably, had only minor injuries.
Jiordano Marinez, 28, of Brockton, was charged with speeding in violation of special regulations, failure to stop for a police officer, failing to yield, and operating negligently.
