BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A man police say was driving an ATV recklessly on I-93 this weekend was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court Monday afternoon.
Aderito Monteiro, 28, pleaded not guilty to charges including disorderly conduct and negligent operation. He was ordered held on $2,000 bail.
He was injured as police tried to stop him on his ATV, and appeared to have a foot injury in court.
According to police, Monteiro was with a group of 25-35 other ATV riders and motorcyclists around 5 p.m. last Saturday when he was spotted doing donuts on the Exit 18 ramp on I-93 South.
"The group’s dangerous operation of their vehicles jeopardized the safety of members of the public and responding police officers," State Police said in a statement. "Numerous 911 calls were received throughout the day Saturday by citizens reporting the riders’ erratic, negligent, and reckless operation."
He then accelerated toward a State Trooper and Boston Police officer, who ordered him to stop.
One of the officers fired his gun, but it's unclear if the bullet struck Monteiro in the foot.
The other men arrested by police on the exit ramp are expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
