Carver man arrested for OUI following hit and run on Long Pond Road

Police arrested a Carver man for allegedly driving drunk after finding him hiding in a home on Early Red Circle, Saturday afternoon.

According to Captain John Rogers, Eric Beaton, 42, allegedly rear-ended a car that had slowed down for another car on Long Pond Road near Gunners Exchange Road. Then, instead of stopping, Beaton continued driving south, Rogers said.

The driver whose car had been struck followed Beaton down to Ship Pond Road where police caught up with them and reportedly found him inside the house. While Beaton knew the homeowners, and allegedly walked through the front door, he was not a wanted guest, Rogers said.

Beaton was charged with OUI (2nd offense), negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of property damage, breaking and entering for a misdemeanor, and trespassing.
