Dylan Costello is a Quincy resident who was featured a year ago on TB Daily News after establishing himself as the most notorious junkie scam artist in the south shore (which is no easy feat).
Luckily he has no custody of that poor crotch fruit, so they don’t have to grow up with the shame of calling this individual Dad.
Dylan was back in the news this week after nearly killing a bunch of innocent people in a failed attempt to outrun the police in Weymouth.

Fox 25 News: Weymouth Police arrested a Randolph man accused of speeding, driving on the wrong side of the road, blowing through red lights and passing cars around lunchtime Thursday, Detective Sergeant Rob Regan told Boston 25 News. Regan said Officer Edward Yakubian tried to stop the driver, later identified as 24-year-old Dylan Costello, just before 11:30 a.m. Yakubian reported Costello failed to stop for him as he pursued him northbound on Pleasant Street into Weymouth Heights. Yakubian lost sight of Costello, but kept searching for him. He eventually located him on Bridge Street where he said Costello again refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed. Ryan Bond was dropping his brother off at school when he saw police in hot pursuit.
“This little black car came balling down the street and was doing like 100 miles an hour,” Bond told Boston 25 News. “I was like, what is this guy doing? Running from the cops? All of a sudden I see the blue lights. I see Weymouth Police chasing after him.”
Costello crashed into three cars on the Fore River Bridge, Regan said. No one in the cars was hurt. A 4-year-old girl, 17-year-old girl and Costello’s father were also in the car Costello was driving, according to Regan. All four were taken by ambulance to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Police have also charged the 17-year-old passenger with misleading a police officer. She switched seats with Costello and tried to tell police she was the one driving, according to Regan. The relationship between Costello and the minors in the car is unknown.
“The Department of Children and Families has received a report and is investigating in collaboration with law enforcement,” an agency spokesperson told Boston 25 News.
The 17-year-old was released from the hospital to a custody of a relative. She’ll be arraigned in Quincy Juvenile Court at a later date. Regan said Weymouth Police were looking for Costello a couple of weeks ago to arrest him on outstanding warrants for similar reckless driving charges. They were unable to locate him, but Boston Police later arrested him in Charlestown.
Costello is facing 17 charges including negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for a police officer, a marked lanes violation, two separate speeding charges, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, concealing a license plate, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended licenses – subsequent offense, operating an unregistered vehicle, operating an uninsured vehicle, using a motor vehicle without authority and two counts of reckless endangerment of a child.
That’s so weird that he would do something like this. Especially after announcing his new record of 48 consecutive hours of sobriety back in June.
I’m sure he had a really good reason to be driving 100 mph at 11:30 AM with his girlfriend’s sister, girlfriend’s father, and his girlfriend’s 4 year old child, and crashing into three other cars. Perhaps he was trying to get away from “hating a** b*****s, while “living his best life” one 100 emoji at a time.
Oh look, he doesn’t like his baby momma. Shocking. Apparently blowing your child support on OC’s and not being a father to your child can rub some women the wrong way.
Sounds like he really has his priorities in order.
And he has lot of respect for women in general.
On the bright side, at least the innocent people all made it out alive. But on the not so bright side, so did Dylan Costello.
