Police: Man Charged With Carjacking, 3rd OUI

Police arrested a Massachusetts man Friday and charged him with carjacking and his third OUI.

Norwood Police say a woman reported being carjacked when she was getting into her vehicle. A man allegedly screamed at her to get out. She did, and police say the man got in and drove off.

Police began searching for a black Subaru, which authorities say the town's deputy police chief, Peter Kelly, spotted on Neponset Street while on his way home.

Authorities say the driver, identified as 44-year-old Timothy Kennedy of Norwood, got onto Interstate 95, making his way to Route 24 southbound.

Kennedy, who police said was not driving at excessive speeds, was taken into custody after stopping at Turnpike Street in Stoughton.

State police say Kennedy was charged with carjacking, operating under the influence of liquor, failure to stop for police and operating to endanger. Norwood Police say it's Kennedy's third OUI offense.

It was not immediately clear if Kennedy had an attorney. He is being held and is expected to appear in court Monday.
