SHREWSBURY, Mass. — A Shrewsbury man was taken into custody after leading troopers through a chase down several roads, police said.

Shawn Warren, 38, of Shrewsbury, was charged with failing to stop for police, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and marked lanes violation.

According to a statement by state police, at about 4:20 p.m. Sunday, Trooper Paul Weinschenk was on patrol on Route 290 in Worcester when he saw a Honda SUV speeding and weaving through traffic. Weinschenk followed the SUV off Route 290 and onto the Grafton Street exit in Shrewsbury.

After the trooper flashed his lights, Warren allegedly sped down Providence Street. Weinschenk ended a short pursuit, concerned for public safety, however, another trooper saw Warren allegedly abandon his vehicle and run down Coral Street.

Warren was located a short distance away with the help of witnesses and other troopers and taken into custody without incident, police said.

He was transported to police barracks in Holden. Warren later was released on personal recognizance and was scheduled to appear Monday in Worcester District Court, according to state police.
