Disc discharge danger

TURNER – A Lewiston man playing disc golf wound up dealing with the wrong kind of shot when a stray round hit him during his round.

State Police say they have identified the shooter of a bullet that wounded a Lewiston man on Aug. 5 at a disc golf facility in Turner.  The bullet in question struck Cameron Hart in the face as he was playing at the Stevens Mountain View Disk Golf Course. Hart underwent surgery to remove the bullet from his cheek at a Lewiston hospital.

Troopers said a neighbor of the course was target practicing on his own property with a 9 mm handgun and it was one of those bullets which struck Hart, who was several hundred feet away. The bullet likely ricocheted off an object on the man’s property, which is located on Pearl Road, the same road the golf course is on. 

Troopers interviewed the man on the day of the incident. His name is not being released at this time, but troopers said he is cooperating with the investigation. An examination of the gun at the State Police Crime Lab and additional investigative work will be completed before the case is reviewed by the district attorney’s office. No charges have been filed.

According to the Maine State Police Facebook page, on Aug. 12, Tr. Tyler Maloon and Tr. Eric Bronson responded to Main Street in Detroit for the report of a vehicle that had crashed into a house. Despite several people being seated in the area struck during the crash, there were no injuries.

Camp crash

GREENLAND, N.H. (AP) — Maine state records indicate the 21-year-old driver of a bus injured in a crash with summer campers has a number of moving violations, including two convictions for driving to endanger.

Police say 11 children and two counselors were aboard when the driver crashed into a tree Friday off of Interstate 95 in Greenland, New Hampshire. The driver and others injured have been released from hospitals.

The Portland Press Herald reports that the driver of the Kittery, Maine, recreation department vehicle was placed on leave. The newspaper reports John E. Guy was cited twice for driving to endanger; twice for speeding; three times for driving with a suspended license; and twice for failing to have a valid inspection sticker.

The Associated Press could not locate a phone number for Guy.

New home for slain deputy’s widow

NORRIDGEWOCK (AP) — A Maine community has come together to help build a new home for the widow of the county sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty this year.

Sheryl Cole and Cpl. Eugene Cole lived in a mobile home in Norridgewock for years, saving up to build their dream home. Sheryl Cole says she thought that dream was over when her husband was killed in April, but a local contractor is building a home for her.

Local Maine businesses are also donating supplies and labor to the project.

Contractors say the plan is to build a new split-level home will replace the mobile home where Cole now lives.

Cole was killed April 25. John D. Williams was arrested and pleaded not guilty to murder charges.
