Lee E. Harvey, 18, of Dorchester, was arrested earlier this week on Massachusetts DUI Charges in Braintree and charged with Operation Under the Influence of Drugs.

According to the Braintree Police Department, officers allegedly observed Harvey make an ‘abrupt’ turn into a parking lot. Probably because they saw a few young kids in the car and for no other reason despite not claiming that any motor vehicle violations were committed, officers then approached the car.

As they approached however, the police allege that one of the passengers, a Randolph man, got out of the car and fled. That man was later stopped a short distance later and he, along with another passenger and two Boston women, were questioned but not arrested for any crimes.
