An Abington man is in hot water after leading authorities on a high-speed chase.

Hanson police were called to the area of Winter and East Washington Sts. around 9:00 a.m. Saturday to assist other officers in the pursuit of a car stolen in Abington.

Hanson police chased the vehicle, a black 2011 Subaru Forester, through East Bridgewater and West Bridgewater, before it came to a stop in Bridgewater.

The driver, 32-year-old Michael Evans, was arrested without incident and is facing a slew of drug and motor vehicle charges, including O.U.I., driving to endanger, and driving with a revoked license.

Evans reportedly has a long criminal history.
