Officer Ends Pursuit With Tackle

      On 9/27/10 at approximately 2:10 a.m., a police pursuit of a motorcycle that began in North Attleboro, continued to Franklin and then to Wrentham, ended when the suspect was momentarily boxed in by police cruisers and then tackled off of his motorcycle as he attempted to flee. Officer Barry McGrath and Officer Joseph Galvao joined the pursuit in Wrentham and assisted other pursuing officers with the stop on 
South Street.

      When police exited their cruisers, the suspect turned his motorcycle toward officers, began revving the engine and lunging the bike in their direction. The suspect then accelerated quickly toward the officers at which point Officer McGrath tackled him, knocking both the suspect and the motorcycle to the ground.

      The suspect was identified as Brett Shuebruk, 73 Crescent Avenue, North Attleboro, MA 02760, date of birth 11/12/1966. Mr. Shuebruk was charged with operating under the influence of liquor (third offense); operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license; operating to endanger; failure to stop for a police officer; marked lanes violations; use of a motor vehicle without authority; assault with a dangerous weapon to wit a motorcycle; and resisting arrest.

Bail was set at $1040.00 and the suspect was arraigned on 9/28/10.
