BOSTON (WWLP) – A Monterey man was arrested Thursday morning after failing to stop for officers and leading them on a high-speed car chase in Boston.

According to State Police Spokesperson David Procopio, 46-year-old Joseph Lyman of Monterey was driving a 2019 Kia Sorrento on the westbound side of the Mass Pike in Boston around 6:52 a.m. when troopers attempted to stop him for failure to use a signal light and an expired registration. Lyman refused to stop and continued to drive westbound at a high rate of speed.

Troopers in Framingham used a tire deflation device which Lyman hit with his vehicle and came to a stop moments later. Lyman was then arrested. No injuries were reported.

Lyman is being charged with:

  • Driving an unregistered motor vehicle
  • Failure to stop for police
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Refusing to identify himself to police

In court, Lyman’s attorney said his client has anxiety and panicked.
