A motorcyclist, who routinely drove 100 mph on area highways and sped away from an Arlington police officer Friday, was caught Tuesday in Randolph, according to police.
Daniel Rebello, 29, of Somerset, was arrested by Randolph police at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday hiding behind a tractor-trailer unit in a parking lot off Route 24.
Rebello allegedly made eye contact with an Arlington police officer at about 4 p.m. Friday near Cambridge Savings Bank in Arlington Center and then sped down the Pleasant Street sidewalk toward Route 2, according to a Boston.com report.
The officer, following department protocols, soon called off the dangerous pursuit and instead worked to identify the driver, which he was able to do by working with Cambridge Savings Bank employees, who had just served Rebello, Arlington Police Chief Frederick Ryan said.
In addition to speeding, Rebello had a history of calling police departments and taunting them to engage him in pursuits, according to Ryan.
Rebello pleaded not guilty to a number of charges Tuesday in Quincy District Court, including assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of racing a motor vehicle, according to Boston.com. His bail was set at $10,000 cash.Read the full Boston.com report >>
