From the Wareham Police Department:

On Friday, November 8, at 11:08 p.m., Wareham Police responded to Cranberry Highway, near Chili’s restaurant for a motor vehicle accident. The reporting party said their vehicle was struck by a red Mustang that was now attempting to flee the area.

Upon his arrival, Officer Aaron Pacheco observed a male jump out the Mustang and run away. Officer Pacheco ordered the man to stop and detained him. After a brief investigation, it was determined that the male had struck a vehicle at the corner of Tyler Avenue and fled. When the Mustang attempted to make a U-turn on Cranberry Highway, the operator struck construction equipment in the area disabling the vehicle. The male was placed under arrest by Officer Pacheco. There were no injuries in the accident.

Terry Panisiak, 37, of East Wareham, was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of liquor, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
