Texting and driving under the influence

LEBANON (AP) — Maine State Police say a woman is accused of striking a parked police cruiser while texting and driving under the influence.

Police say 22-year-old Molly Foisy, of Sanford, allegedly struck the cruiser that was behind a tow truck in the breakdown lane of Route 202 in Lebanon Saturday.

Authorities say Foisy was traveling at a high rate of speed and narrowly missed hitting the tow truck, as well.

No one was injured.

Orrington standoff ends in arrests

ORRINGTON – Three people have been arrested following an incident in Orrington.

State Police arrested three persons in Orrington on July 20 following a long standoff at a mobile home during the day. The incident began when a woman visitor to the home reported she had been robbed in the early morning hours.  She left the home and called police. 

When troopers arrived at the home at 592 Johnson Mill Rd, none of the occupants would leave the home and the State Police tactical team with negotiators were called to resolve the standoff, which lasted just under 12 hours.  

In addition to troopers, Penobscot deputies, Brewer Police and the Eddington and Orrington fire departments assisted at the scene.  A cooling tent was brought to the scene by the Eddington Fire Dept to assist troopers with the oppressive heat.  

Arrested were 33-year-old Stephen Nason and 37-year-old Rochelle Gleason, both from Orrington and 33-year-old Jason Ashe of Glenburn. Nason and Gleason were charged with robbery and aggravated assault. Ashe was charged with violating his bail conditions. The trio was taken to the Penobscot County Jail.  The standoff ended just after 7 pm. 

The mobile home is owned by Nason's mother, who was not home.

Warden arrested at concert

BANGOR (AP) — A Maine game warden has been charged with misdemeanor assault and placed on administrative leave following a concert in Bangor.

The Bangor Daily News reports 41-year-old Mechanic Falls resident Jeremy Judd is slated for arraignment Aug. 21. Police haven’t released many details about the alleged assault, which they say took place during a Florida Georgia Line concert on Thursday night at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion.

The charge carries a penalty of up to a year in prison and a fine up to $2,000. Judd is a K-9 handler with the Maine Warden Service. A spokesman for the service says Judd has been placed on administrative leave.

Calls to phone numbers listed as belonging to Judd were not returned. It was unclear if he had retained a lawyer.

Authorities seek help locating arson suspects

SANFORD – Law enforcement officials are seeking the public’s help in locating two men possibly connected to an arson case.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office and Sanford Police are looking for two men wanted for questioning in connection with a house fire in Sanford earlier this month. The house at 26 Montreal St was destroyed in the July 6 fire and fire marshals determined the cause was arson. 

The two men being sought are 25-year-old Johnathon Cox and 23-year-old Lonnie McMahon. Although the two men are from Sanford-Springvale, they do not have permanent addresses and authorities have been unable to locate them.  

Anyone knowing the location of either man is asked to call Sanford Police at 324-3644 or the State Fire Marshal’s Office, in care of the Public Safety Communications Center in Augusta – 207 624-7076.
