WAREHAM, Mass. - One of two men arrested by Wareham Police early Tuesday morning told officers during the booking process he hoped they ‘get shot and killed on duty,’ according to Acting Police Chief John Walcek.
Officer Calib Larue was driving on Cranberry Highway around 1 a.m. when he spotted a car coming at him in the wrong lane.
Larue said he pulled the car over, but the driver started to back up and take off. Larue jumped in his cruiser and yelled at the driver to stop, which he did.
The driver and passenger were uncooperative. Larue said the driver gave him a false name.
A further investigation revealed the driver had a warrant for his arrest and was taken into custody.
Police then searched the car and said they found a digital scale, more than $2,000 in cash, multiple phones, multiple pills and suspected heroin.
Officers then arrested the passenger.
Both men were taken to police headquarters where they were processed and each ordered held on $10,000 cash bail.

The passenger – Michael Lacrosse, 37, of Lynn – is charged with drug possession and failure to wear a seat belt.
