A Maryland man was arrested Monday after allegedly leading Burlington police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash and injured another person, authorities said. An officer noticed a white minivan in a handicapped-parking space at the Burlington Mall at about 7 p.m., police said. The suspect, identified as Robert D. Haught Jr., 42, of College Park, Md., allegedly sped out of the parking lot, where he struck a stationary police cruiser. Haught continued on Cambridge Street and an officer fired two rounds at the vehicle, police said. The van allegedly struck two vehicles, causing one person to be taken to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.
