Abington man appears in court in connection with high-speed chase

An Abington man appeared in court on Monday after a high-speed chase through several towns. 

Michael Leblanc appeared in Wrentham District Court Monday morning for a continuation of his dangerousness hearing. 

The hearing began last Monday, but the defense needed more time to prepare their evidence. 

Leblanc is facing charges connected to a high-speed chase from Walpole to West Roxbury. 

The chase started when Leblanc allegedly dragged an officer nearly 300 feet with his car and ended with the car in flames. 

Leblanc was arrested in West Roxbury while trying to hide inside an apartment building.
