Energy-drink man stops after an hour

Police say a South Hadley man is facing charges after allegedly stealing several cases of Red Bull energy drink from a Northampton supermarket and leading police on an hour-long chase through several towns.
Police say 30-year-old William Gardner grabbed five 12-packs of the beverage worth just over $100.

Authorities say he ignored a store security guard and took off, leading police through Easthampton and Southampton before his tires were punctured and he was arrested in Westfield.
Gardner is charged with failing to stop for police, reckless driving and resisting arrest in Westfield and larceny in Northampton. Police did not indicate whether he drank any Red Bull during the pursuit.
