WILLIAMSTOWN - A man wanted by New York State Police was chased at high speeds into Massachusetts last week, resulting in over a dozen charges.
The driver was eventually arrested in Williamstown by Massachusetts State Police from the Cheshire barracks on Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Joseph Guile, 23, of Gordon Street in Pittsfield, was arraigned Monday on 13 charges following the chase, including failure to stop for police, assault with a dangerous weapon, having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle without an ignition interlock.
Guile was wanted by New York State Police on felony burglary warrants.
When stopped, police allegedly found empty shotgun shells on Guile's dashboard, resulting in a possession of ammunition without a firearms identification card charge.
Police also allegedly found an open container of alcohol next to the driver's seat of the car, according to the police report. Guile does have a prior OUI conviction, the report stated, and was supposed to have used an ignition interlock system.
Guile was also charged with speeding in a construction zone. According to the police report filed by Massachusetts State Police Officer David McKearney, Guile was reported to have reached speeds of approximately 90 miles per hour on Route 43 heading to Williamstown.
