High-speed chase leads to crash

AUBURN (AP) — A 15-year-old boy led police on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle before crashing into a convenience store early Saturday, police said.

The pursuit reached speeds up to 90 mph and police abandoned the pursuit in downtown Auburn before the car crashed, police said.

The driver was evaluated at Maine Medical Center and transported to Long Creek Youth Development Center for an unrelated warrant. The passenger was not charged and was returned to his parents.

The chase began early Saturday, just after midnight, when a Cumberland County deputy headed to an unrelated emergency in Gray noticed a car that was being operated erratically and learned that it was stolen.

The deputy pursued the suspect through New Gloucester and into Auburn, where Auburn police joined the chase. No one was hurt in the incident and the teenage driver was not identified.

New Bangor jail plans on hold

BANGOR (AP) — Plans for a new jail in Maine are on hold in the wake of criticism from the public about a plan for an eight-story, 250-bed facility that some feared would have altered the Bangor skyline.

Commissioners in Penobscot County decided to pause the planning process after residents voiced concerns about the height and size of the facility, the Bangor Daily News reported. That means commissioners won’t put a referendum on the June ballot asking voters to fund the project, which was estimated to cost $65 to $70 million.

The facility would’ve been more than 116,000 square feet and it would’ve taken the place of a former YMCA building in Bangor’s downtown.

Penobscot County Commissioner Chairman Peter Baldacci said commissioners would see if the height of the project could be reduced. However, commissioners aren’t considering other sites for the facility, he said.

Deal reached in cannon charges

ELLSWORTH (AP) — A criminal case against the chairman of a construction company over the firing of a small cannon that injured a referee is expected to be dismissed.

Cianbro Corp. Chairman Peter Vigue was indicted on criminal charges on Dec. 5. The aggravated assault and reckless conduct charges were dismissed in a deal reached with the Hancock County district attorney’s office last week, according to court documents.

The third charge, possessing or discharging a firearm on school property, will be dismissed if Vigue doesn’t break any criminal laws in the next six months.

Vigue is accused of firing a cannon during a Marine Maritime Academy football game in Castine in September. Authorities said Vigue, a Maine Maritime alumnus, fired the cannon in tradition when the team scored a touchdown. But something discharged and hit a referee in the head.

The referee was taken to a hospital but did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

The agreement does not require Vigue to enter a plea, and there will be no criminal record. Vigue has also agreed to pay a $250 court fee and donate $1,000 to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 109 in Ellsworth.

Vigue and his attorney did not respond to request for comment.

Sheriff helps save men in ATV incident

WARREN (AP) — Two Warren men remain were hospitalized after their ATV fell through the ice.

Craig Dennison, 38, was driving the ATV with Donald Holbrook, 28, as a passenger Saturday night when they hit open water about 100 yards from shore on Crawford Pond, authorities said Sunday.

Dennison was in stable condition Saturday night. Holbrook was transferred to Maine Medical Center in stable but serious condition.

Authorities said the incident is a warning that ice conditions along the coast can be hazardous.

Pane pain

BANGOR – An attempt at vandalism at a Bangor bar backfired spectacularly recently when a man’s efforts to break a window bounced back in a most unexpected way.

It all went down on the evening of Jan. 15. According to reports, at approximately 10:40 p.m., a man walking by Nocturnem Draft Haus, a bar located on Main Street in downtown Bangor, decided to pick up the sandwich board set up on the sidewalk outside and attempt to throw it through the large front window.

It did not go according to plan.

The window, made of tempered glass, did not shatter. Instead, the sandwich board rebounded and hit the man – later identified as 35-year-old Deng Rag – in the head, leaving him stunned on the sidewalk.

Authorities arrived soon after the incident, with Rag being transported to a local hospital for treatment. From there, he was issued a summons and cited for criminal mischief. Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crime.

Massive jet makes emergency landing at BIA

BANGOR (AP) — One of the world’s largest passenger jets made an unscheduled landing at Maine’s Bangor International Airport because of a medical emergency involving a passenger, officials said.

The fire department needed to use its aerial ladder to retrieve the patient from the second level of the double-decker A380, which landed at the airport at 9:30 a.m., said spokeswoman Aimee Thibodeau.

The firetruck ladder expedited the passenger’s removal because the airport’s steps wouldn’t reach the airplane’s upper doors, Thibodeau said.

The Emirates Airbus A380 from Dubai took off from Bangor at 12:15 p.m. to continue its flight to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
