Marshfield: Police Chase and Standoff on Rt. 139 on Wednesday

A 21-year-old Hanson man is facing numerous charges in connection with an incident that began when he walked into the Marshfield Police Department lobby shortly before noon time Wednesday. 

Police Chief Phil Tavares, “He came into the lobby of the police station, and due to his irrational behavior, and conversation with the desk offficer, we believe that he may be in need of some type of medical attention. At that time we called the paramedics to evaluate him and he ran out the front door towards his car, he jumped into a 2005 malibu and screeched out of the police station.”

Marshfield Police Chief Tavares says Colin Trengoning then proceeded to speed down Rt. 139, headed west towards Pembroke Crossing over double yellow lines, failing to stop for several officers, and crossing into onto oncomming traffic, and striking several cars along the way.

Chief Tavares says Trengoning also appeared at one point to deliberatly aim for a crusier before swerving at the last minute and running a red light.

He proceeded into Pembroke, at speeds approaching 60 miles an hour, striking several vehicles and a jersey barrier in the opposite lane, before the vehicles came to a stop.

Marshfield Police Chief Tavares, ”At that time he jumped out of the car, failed to obey the police commands. And he clenched his fists, took a fighting stance, and at that time Sargeant Morris deployed his tazer, striking him in the chest with both prongs. Trengoing had no reaction to the tazer, which was alarming. He stayed standing with his fists clenched in a fighting stance, and refused to obey commands. Two other offciers arrived on scene and were able to guide him to the ground, and place him in handcuffs. He was transported to the hospital and later transported to Plymouth District Court for arraingnment.”

Trengoing is facing charges that include: marked lanes violation, speeding reckless operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for a police officer, failure to stop for a red light (2 counts) and resisting arrest.
