Officer Jumps Into Pick-up to Avoid Being StruckAt 2:10 this morning officers in District 1 observed a Black Dodge Pick-up truck hit another vehicle at Stuart and Tremont Streets and attempt to leave the scene. Officers chased the suspect truck on foot ordering the driver to stop. The driver refused to obey the lawful commands of the officers and swerved his truck towards one of the officers, nearly crushing the officer between the pick-up and a parked car. The officer jumped into the rear bed of the suspect pick-up truck to avoid being crushed and again ordered the suspect to stop the vehicle. With the officer still in the rear of the truck, the suspect continued on Stuart Street and came to a stop just before Charles Street South. The suspect was removed from the truck and arrested. Arraignment will be in Boston Municipal Court on Monday.
