Man arrested after short chase

SALEM — Police say a Lynn man was arrested on multiple charges early yesterday morning after leading an officer on a short chase on Ocean Avenue.

Miguel Acosta-Zapata, 18, of 50 Winnepurkit Ave., Lynn, was arrested on charges of failure to stop for police, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and speeding greater than reasonable.

The incident began when an officer was dispatched to 270 Lafayette St. after a 3:55 a.m. report that loud music was coming from a vehicle there, according to the incident log.

The officer was unable to locate any loud music but did see a vehicle entering Ocean Avenue from Lafayette Street at a high rate of speed, police wrote.

“The operator refused to stop, and a short pursuit occurred with the operator finally stopping,” police wrote.

Acosta-Zapata was arrested shortly thereafter.
