Man sentenced to probation, jail time in cart joyride case

Jasen Meyn, 24, was sentenced to 40 days in county jail and two years court probation Wednesday after being found guilty to taking a golf cart on a joyride in Belmont at 2:30 a.m. on July 22, 2006.

When police stopped him on Cambridge Avenue, he gave a false name. While police did a background check, Meyn fled, causing one police officer to fall and fracture his elbow. A jury found Meyn guilty of four misdemeanor counts but split on the felony charge of causing injury to a police officer. The district attorney dropped the felony charge Wednesday.
