WORCESTER (CBS) – A carjacking suspect who was arrested after a daylong search appeared in court Friday bruised and scraped, and had a message for the cameras in the courtroom.
“The cops literally for two hours stomped me out, they kept tazing me and waking me back up, stomp me out, taze me, stomp me out,” Foy yelled in court.
Security video from a Worcester barbershop shows the flurry of police activity as officers took him down on the roof of an auto body shop.
“In the middle of cutting hair all of a sudden I just see all these blue lights one after the other, probably like at least 20 police cars or more,” said Toca Legacy of Main Event Barbershop.
It was the end of a long odyssey for Foy who was pulled over by Webster Police for having an unregistered truck on I-395. As they waited for a tow, he took off, leading them on an early morning chase Thursday until he crashed on I-290 in Auburn, and allegedly stole another car at gunpoint.
Police say he drove the wrong way on two highways before eventually losing them in Worcester’s Kelley Square. They later tracked him down on Hudson Street, and during another chase, he allegedly ran over an officer’s foot and crashed into a cruiser before turning into Worcester Auto Center where the owner says he rammed a fence before climbing onto the roof.
“The defendant ignored their commands to essentially give up,” said prosecutor John Melander. “They were forced to wrestle him to the ground at which time one of the officers had to use their Taser to subdue him and take him into custody.”
Foy was out on bail on unrelated gun charges when this incident happened. That bail has been revoked at least until next month when he appears in court.
