A Massachusetts man was arrested and arraigned after police say he stole a car and broke into a Marshfield home on Monday.

Police became aware of something afoul after being alerted to reports of a man who was in his underwear and talking to himself near a school.

According to a release issued by the Marshfield Police Department, officers eventually tracked down 37-year-old Michael Clancy, after he was reported to be nearby breaking in to a car.

Upon arrival to a local residence, Clancy barricaded himself inside with two hostages before fleeing.

Police later found Clancy in the adjacent neighbor’s backyard, carrying a stolen kayak toward and heading towards the nearby marsh.

The suspect was reportedly wearing a “captain’s hat” during his attempted escape. 

According to WHDH, Clancy was taken into custody without incident, though he became violent with an officer and firefighters after being taken to a nearby hospital. 

Clancy, who is homeless, was arraigned on two counts of breaking and entering into a vehicle in the daytime for a felony, larceny of a motor vehicle, breaking and entering in the daytime for a felony, larceny over $250, assault and battery on a police officer, two counts of assault and battery on ambulance personnel, and operating a motor vehicle with license revoked.
