Stoughton driver faces a host of charges, including OUI, drug possession Tom Webb III is accused of driving at a state police cruiser on Route 139. By Allan Stein ENTERPRISE CORRESPONDENT Posted Aug 29, 2008 @ 01:20 AM STOUGHTON — A Stoughton man is facing multiple charges, including a second offense of drunken driving, after he allegedly drove at a state police cruiser near the Route 24 onramp at Route 139. Tom Webb III, 34, of 27 Page Terrace, Apt. 504, was arraigned Thursday in Stoughton District Court on charges of second-offense drunken driving; assault with a dangerous weapon, a vehicle; malicious destruction of property over $250; resisting arrest; failure to stop or yield; a marked lanes violation; failure to obey traffic signs; refusing to identify himself as the driver of the car; possession of crack cocaine; possession of marijuana; failure to stop for police; and driving after license suspension. Judge Richard Savignano released Webb on $2,500 bail and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Nov.5. According to State Police Trooper David M. Manning, at 12:30 a.m. Thursday he noticed a car on Route 139 slow down and make a hard right turn between tightly spaced barrels near a highway construction site. Manning said he activated his cruiser’s flashing lights and made an attempt to cut off the vehicle. The vehicle then accelerated at the cruiser, forcing Manning off the road into plastic barrels to avoid a collision. The vehicle then proceeded onto the Route 24 onramp, past two pickup trucks and continued toward a backhoe and several highway construction workers. Manning said the car finally stopped about 10 feet from the backhoe under a bridge overpass, with concrete falling onto the car’s hood and windshield. When the officer went to talk to the driver, the officer could smell alcohol inside the vehicle and saw Webb talking on a cell phone. Webb allegedly refused to exit the car, and Manning said he forcibly had to remove and handcuff Webb, who resisted. During the altercation, Manning said he removed a large buck-knife from the waistband of Webb’s pants and sprayed Webb with pepper spray when he continued to resist. Police also seized from Webb what appeared to be a small bag containing marijuana and a prescription bottle that contained two pieces of crack cocaine. Webb has also has a drunken driving charge out of Taunton District Court from July 12, 2000, police said. http://www.enterprisenews.com/news/...rges-including-OUI-drug-possession?view=print Well done Trooper...doubt those flagman would have done the same!
