HINGHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Hingham police say a 20-year-old man from Randolph was arrested on Friday after he led police on a brief pursuit.

Officials said the pursuit came to an end, when a Sergeant struck the car to disable it. The car drove with two flat tires and drove over a sidewalk out of control.

Police arrested Sidney Clinton Borno and charged him with Operating Under the Influence of Drugs, Negligent Operation and more.

Weymouth Police received a report around 1:13 P.M. of a car that fled the scene of a crash and was last seen heading towards Hingham.

Officers searched for the car and then received a report of it driving on a flat tire on Beal Street, allegedly all over the road. Borno initially pulled over when the Sergeant in an unmarked car spotted it.

The car drove up onto the sidewalk, opened the door and then drove away. As the car continued, its parts came off along the road.

The car continued on Rte. 3A and allegedly almost hit several oncoming cars. After almost hitting a utility pole and with a work crew ahead, the Sergeant determined the car needed to be stopped.

To disable the car, the officer drove into the driver's side rear door with the front of the cruiser. Weymouth and Hingham officers both arrived on scene and after a short time, Borno was placed under arrest.

Officers say they noticed his lethargic demeanor, slurred speech, and a strong marijuana odor. The 2007 Nissan Sentra Borno was driving, and the police car were towed from the scene.

Both Borno and the officer were evaluated and released from the hospital.
