A Warren man led Rockland police on a brief chase Wednesday night, Feb. 14, before he was tackled by an officer after trying to flee into a residence.

Stephen J. Little, 30, pleaded guilty Friday afternoon in Knox County Unified Court to several charges during his initial appearance following the chase.

Little was sentenced to six months in jail for failing to stop for an officer, aggravated operating after revocation, operating under the influence of alcohol. terrorizing, criminal mischief, theft, refusing to submit to arrest and violating a condition of release.

Rockland police were called shortly after 10 p.m. about a domestic disturbance at a residence on Rankin Street. As officers arrived, they were notified that Little had just taken a vehicle without the owner's permission.

Rockland officers spotted the vehicle and turned on the cruiser's blue lights and siren, but Little refused to stop, according to an affidavit filed in court by Rockland police. The vehicle proceeded to Old County Road, where it made a U-turn and then headed back to Rankin Street.

The vehicle struck a parked car near a residence on Rankin Street and Little ran out of the vehicle and tried to get into the home, according to police.

Officer Michael Rolerson got out of the cruiser and was able to bring Little down as the man was on the porch of the residence. Little resisted, however, but was able to be handcuffed.

Little threatened to kill the officers and made other threats, according to the affidavit.

Officers interviewed a woman at the residence Little had left before taking the vehicle and she said he had become confrontational, spat on her, punched a hole in a wall, and smashed a mirror in her bedroom.

Little attempted to spit on officers and emergency medical personnel, requiring officers to put a hood on him to prevent him from spitting on them. He continued to struggle while he was at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport before he was sedated, according to police.
