Rockport Police/Fire: Smith Street man facing driving charges

Rockport Police/Fire

ROCKPORT — A Rockport man with a history of repeatedly driving during license suspensions has been arrested again.

The charge? Driving without a license. A police officer initially tried to stop Mark Taber, 42, of Smith Street in the area of Pooles Lane on Thursday, because a license plate check revealed he did not have a valid license.

Taber, who received a suspended sentence on the same charge last year, tried to evade the officer, police said.

Police said the vehicle was soon found on Main Street and Taber was discovered near Millbrook Meadow.

Besides the license charge, Taber faces charges of reckless operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police and having an invalid inspection sticker.

At 3:25 p.m. Tuesday, police received a phone call about an erratic operator on Main Street. An officer caught up to Bret Feldman, 54, of Sandy Bay Terrace on Sandy Bay Terrace, where police said he failed a field sobriety test. He was arrested on the charge of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Thursday at 9:30 p.m., police assisted a Jerdens Lane resident who was locked out of their car.
