On 07/18/2019 at approximately 5:57PM, Chief James Trombetta observed a KTM 530EX motorcycle with a Rhode Island registration traveling west on Winthrop St. in the area of New St.  As the motorcycle went through the intersection the operator accelerated and he observed the front tire of the motorcycle lift off the ground.  After observing the motorcycle travel in this manner Chief Trombetta attempted to stop the motorcycle.  The operator refused to stop and continued traveling west.  At the intersection of Rte 44 and Rte 118 the operator of the motorcycle cut through the parking lots of Cumberland Farms and the Exxon gas station in attempt to elude Chief Trombetta.  After exiting the Exxon gas station the motorcycle continued to refuse to stop and continued into Seekonk.  After entering Seekonk the motorcycle came to a stop after crashing into another motor vehicle.  The operator of the motorcycle was identified as 21 year old Hector Nieves Medina of Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  It was learned that the motorcycle was unregistered and Mr. Nieves Medina was not licensed to operate a motorcycle.  Mr. Nieves Medina was taken into custody and transported to the Rehoboth Police Station where he was booked.  Mr. Nieves Medina was released from police custody on personal recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Taunton District Court on 07/19/2019, 8:30am for arraignment.  Mr. Nieves Medina was charged with failure to stop for police, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, unlawfully attaching a number plate, operating to endanger and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.  Chief Trombetta was assisted by Ptlm. Scott Sousa, Ptlm. Louis DiBacco, Ptlm. Mark Wetherell and Sgt. James Casey.
