Teens Involved In Police Chase

12:00AM / Thursday, March 30, 2006

Williamstown - Two North Adams youths face an April 4 arraignment at the Northern Berkshire District Court after leading police on a March 29 chase along Guilford Transportation-owned railroad tracks.

Police said that 17-year-old Joshua Bressette of Union Street and Jedediah Bressette, 18, of Mill Street, are charged with trespassing on a railroad property, failure to stop for police while on a recreational vehicle, driving an unregistered recreational vehicle, use of a recreational vehicle on a public way, and unsafe operation of a recreational vehicle.

Town police Sgt. David Lemieux was out on a routine patrol at about 6 p.m. when he saw an all-terrain vehicle and a "dirt bike" morotcycle being driven along North Hoosac Road, according to police. Lemieux attempted to stop both vehicles but police said neither driver stopped, instead driving through a railroad crossing and then driving in an easterly direction along railroad tracks.
Town police Officer John J. McConnell Jr. assisted Lemieux with a police chase that covered about three miles, police said.

North Adams police officers and off-duty town police Sgt. Scott McGowan and Officer Michael Ziemba assisted Lemieux and McConnell as well, according to police information. Police arrested the youths after the chase concluded on Massachusetts Avenue in North Adams.

Joshua Bressette and Jedediah Bressette were released on personal recognizance pending their arraignment.
