10/25 at 2:00 a.m. When Abdullahi A. Nur, 24, of Cambridge, Mass., was allegedly caught breezing through a stop sign, he complied with an officer’s signal to pull over. Unfortunately, police say that was as easy as he was going to make it on them. After stopping his car on Payne Road, Nur jumped out and ran across the street and into the woods in an effort to evade police. Officer Brian Nappi followed Nur about 50 feet into the woods, according to a police report, before convincing the runner from away to stop. Though he’d stopped running, Nur still fought arrest by diving to the ground and putting his hands underneath him, Nappi wrote in the report. The officer eventually got the cuffs on Nur and charged him with operating with a suspended or revoked license, operating under the influence, violating bail conditions of release and refusing to submit to arrest or detention.

According to a police report, the alleged would-be burglar said he’d never burgled before, but that the home he cased looked like an easy target. Steeves was arrested on a charge of burglary to a residence and was sent to Cumberland County Jail. He has since posted bail.
