Jason M. Dunn, 37, of Alcott Street, Allston, was arrested at about 12:53 a.m. Monday on Mass. Ave. and charged with operating under the influence first offense and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Dunn allegedly rear-ended a car stopped at the Lake Street light on Mass. Ave. while drunk.

The driver of the other vehicle, a Honda Accord, said that he was stopped at the light when Dunn, driving a Toyota Sienna toward Arlington Center, came up behind him at a “high rate of speed” and hit him, causing his car to move forward about one full car length. Dunn’s car sustained major front-end damage, according to police. The Accord had minor damage to its rear bumper as well. No injuries were reported.

A female passenger ran from Dunn’s vehicle right after the crash, the other driver told police.

Dunn appeared to be drunk at the scene, police said. After refusing a field sobriety test and portable breath test at the scene, Dunn later submitted to an alcohol chemical test at the police station, according to police. The test results showed that Dunn had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.18 percent, police said, which is more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

It was raining heavily at the time of the crash, police said.

Kaela J. Bennett, 18, of Lake Street, Arlington, was arrested at about 1:11 a.m. Sunday on Summer Street on an active court warrant.

Police responded to the Minuteman bike path, near Russell Place, at about 12:42 a.m. Sunday for a report of a group of teenagers lighting off fireworks. There, they located Bennett and three other teens, who denied lighting any fireworks. The teens didn’t have any fireworks in their possession, police said.

Police asked the teens for their IDs, and Bennett was then arrested, as she had a warrant out of Woburn District Court for one count of destruction of property under $250 and one count of shoplifting by concealing merchandise over $100, according to police. The other teens were allowed to leave the scene, police said.
