BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Brockton man led police on a car chase through four towns with his 3-year-old daughter in the vehicle, crashed his car, used the little girl as a shield, then dropped her and tried to run away.
According to the Brockton Enterprise, Kenton Wright Jr. was held on $15,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to charges including reckless endangerment of a child, failure to stop for a police officer, and drug possession.
The chase started at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when the 30-year-old Kenton allegedly fled a traffic stop in Holbrook. The chase went through Weymouth and Abington before the car crashed into a utility pole in Brockton.
The Enterprise reports that the girl was taken to a hospital as a precaution but was OK.
Kenton has a pending drug case.
