BOURNE, Mass. (AP) — The mother of a man from Rhode Island charged with driving his car through a security checkpoint at a Cape Cod military base says her son is “delusional” and in desperate need of help.
Harold Lamotte, of Charlestown, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on nine charges including trespassing and assault and battery on a police officer.
State police say the 31-year-old Lamotte’s vehicle failed to stop at a Joint Base Cape Cod gate at 1:40 a.m. Monday then sped off and crashed into a pole.
Lamotte was arrested at the crash site.
Police say there’s no evidence Lamotte is a threat to national security.
His mother, Myra Lamkins, tells the Boston Herald her son has been seeing a counselor but she has been unsuccessfully trying to get him additional help.
