Dennis chase; Falmouth fire

One arrested after leading police on chase
DENNIS - A Brewster man was arrested after a chase through two Cape Cod towns Sunday evening. The chase started in Dennis  just after 10 PM when officer John Brady observed a 1980 Chevy Corvette leaving the Tedeschi's on ROute 6A at a high rate of speed. The vehicle turned off its lights and reportedly weaved back and forth as the chase wound through neighborhoods in Dennis and also Brewster for about 15-20 minutes. State Police were able to use a stop sticks device to deflate the vehicles tires. Both subjects reportedly bailed out after continuing a short distance before stopping on Whiffletree Road in Brewster. The driver 42-year old Christopher Rego was quickly located and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, failing to stop for a police officer, operating to endanger and several other motor vehicle charges. The passenger was located a short time later and was questioned but not arrested. Posted on 1/08 at 1:30 AM; updated on 1/08 at 2:00 PM.
