Framingham Police were chasing a vehicle on Edmands Road and Carter Drive, according to residents in that neighborhood who contacted Framingham Patch.

A man was seen, by residents entering the wooded area near Carter Drive and eventually tackled and arrested by Framingham Police.


Ailton Amorim, 32, of Marlborough, was charged with three counts speeding, two counts failure to stop for police officer, two counts operating as to endanger, two counts marked lanes violation, providing false identification to a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license.

Amorim was a driving a Volvo and stopped on Edmands Road for speeding by a Framingham Police Officer at 4:45 p.m., said Framingham Police Lt. Stephen Cronin.

Amorin allegedly drove off at high speed causing several vehicles to swerve out of the way to avoid collisions, said Lt. Cronin.

The police officer initially lost sight of him, but located the Volvo again on Carter Drive and activated his blue lights again, said Lt. Cronin.

The Volvo initially stopped, but then again sped away at speeds up to 65 mph turning onto Kevin Circle, said Lt. Cronin.

The Volvo was spotted in a driveway on Kevin Circle and the police officer saw the suspect run into wooded area, said Lt. Cronin. 

Additional police officers responded to the neighborhood and began a search for the man. He was eventually located, as he attempted to return to his vehicle and was arrested, said Lt. Cronin.

Amorim suffered a minor hand injury when he fled into woods. He was transported to the hospital for treatment and then taken to the police station where he was booked on charges.

Is this why there were helicopters flying overhead around 5:45?

No, the helicopters were reported from Boston to Worcester and are part of prep work in anticipation of the president's visit to Worcester this week.
