A man tried to out drive, and then outrun a Watertown Police officer, but in the end he was caught and placed under arrest.
On Nov. 15 at 11:06 p.m., an officer spotted a vehicle speeding on North Beacon Street, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
“He observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed – 60 to 70 miles per hour,” Lawn said. “He tried to catch up with the vehicle and put on his lights on Irving Street.”
The man then turned into a driveway and tried to run from the officer, but he was caught on Mt. Auburn Street Lawn said.
The driver did not have a license and police found a bag with a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine on the man, Lawn said.
Aaron T. Hart, 37, of Newton was arrested on charges of speeding, failing to stop for police, running a red light, unlicensed driving and possession of a Class B substance, Lawn said.
