    Man Faces Multiple Charges Following Police Pursuit in Western Massachusetts

    A Massachusetts man is facing multiple charges following a pursuit through the western part of the state on Saturday morning.

    State police said a trooper attempted to stop Phillip Jacobsen, 29, of Greenfield, at 9:15 a.m. on Route 91 northbound for various motor vehicle violations. Authorities said Jacobsen refused to stop his Chevrolet Cavalier and took the exit 26 ramp onto the Route 2A rotary, where he struck another vehicle.

    No injuries were reported.

    Jacobsen continued eastbound, turning onto Fairview Street and then to Monson Street, where police said he got out of the vehicle and fled on foot.

    State police and Greenfield Police then set up a perimeter and K9 officers began tracking him. At about 10 a.m., Jacobsen was spotted by a state police helicopter and he was taken into custody without incident.

    Jacobsen was booked and faces charges of failure to stop for a police officer; OUI drugs; possession with intent to distribute class A; operating after suspension; marked lanes; left lane violation; negligent operation of a motor vehicle; leaving the scene of a crash; and failure to produce registration. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Greenfield District Court.
