At 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Sgt. Paul Somers was stopped at the stop sign on Main Street near Tobey Road when he saw a man driving a red dirt bike style motorcycle cross over the center line into oncoming traffic, cross in front of the cruiser onto the shoulder of the road, and run the stop sign before stalling under the South Wareham Bridge. Somers caught up to the motorcycle as the driver restarted the bike and tried to flee before being placed under arrest. Markiese Tomkinson, age 22, of West Wareham, was charged with operating after suspension of a driver’s license, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police, failure to stop at a stop sign, a marked lanes violation, and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
