WARREN, Mass. (WWLP) – A driver is in custody after leading police on a chase through several towns while driving erratically eastbound on Route 67 Thursday night.

Warren Fire Department spokesman Kyle A. Sledziewski told 22News that the Rutland Regional Emergency Communications Center received multiple 911 calls reporting a car was traveling uncontrollably.
