Harwich Police nab motorcyclist on 2nd OUI Sunday night

Man ran red light, tried to flee from police

HARWICH - On Sunday evening, October 31, 2010, at approximately 6:50 p.m., Harwich Police Patrol Officer Paul Boorack was attempting to make a left turn onto Route 124 when he saw a dark-colored motorcycle traveling south on Route 124 run the red light at a high rate of speed.

Seth Norgeot, 32, of Harwich, arrested on a number of charges after trying to out run police. HPD booking photo.

Officer Boorack activated his emergency lights as the motorcycle accelerated and passed several vehicles as the rider attempted to flee. The pursuit continued down Route 124 where the rider made a right turn onto Main Street while continuing to pass other vehicles and driving at a high rate of speed.

Officer Boorack continued his pursuit of the motorcycle as it turned right onto Lothrop Ave. The motorcyclist could not negotiate the turn onto Main Street from Lothrop Ave. and crashed on the front lawn of a residence on Main Street. The operator continued in his efforts to flee by accelerating the motorcycle across the yard before laying the bike down in some brush.

The operator then fled on foot from Officer Boorack who was joined by Patrol Sergeant Richard Campbell as well as fellow Patrol Officers Mark Shelley, John Warren and Keith Lincoln. A K-9 unit was requested to help track the suspect through the heavy brush but the suspect surrendered to police prior to the K-9 unit's arrival.

The suspect was identified as Seth Norgeot,  32, of Harwich.  Norgeot showed several signs of being under the influence of alcohol and was placed under arrest and charged with the following:

  • OUI Alcohol 2nd Offense
  • Failure to Stop for Police
  • Negligent Operation of a Motorcycle
  • Unlicensed Operation of a Motorcycle

Norgeot was held overnight at the Harwich Police Facility on $500 cash bail. He was transported to Orleans District Court on Monday for his arraignment.
