Judge Orders Mental Evaluation For Marine Vet

The Marine who allegedly led police  on a chase through West Springfield with pipe bombs in his pickup truck  is being ordered to get a mental evaluation.  

The order was handed down  in Springfield District Court on Tuesday for Robert Decoteau of Russell  to be sent to Bridgewater State Hospital.  

Decoteau, who is facing two  counts of making a false bomb threat and four counts of possession of  explosives with intent to injure, is said to suffer from Post-Traumatic  Stress Disorder.  

No injuries were reported from yesterday's incident.
