BOSTON (AP) - An Abington man who allegedly asked officers what he had to do to “get shot by the police” after leading them on a high-speed chase through several Massachusetts towns has been arrested.

Police say 28-year-old Michael Leblanc is charged with attempted murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The chase began shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday when police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in Walpole. A responding officer was pinned to Leblanc’s car and dragged for about 100 yards before freeing himself.

Police pursued Leblanc through Norwood and Dedham before Leblanc’s car caught fire in the city’s West Roxbury neighborhood.

The officer dragged by Leblanc’s car was treated and released.

Leblanc is expected to be arraigned Thursday.

It’s unclear whether Leblanc has an attorney.
