Brewer man arrested for OUI

BREWER  A Brewer man is facing charges related to drunk driving.

On March 15, Officer Eduardo Benjamin was on patrol when he stopped a vehicle for speeding on South Main Street. The driver, Christopher Reed, 42, of Brewer, showed signs of intoxication and was administered field sobriety exercises by the office, according to police. 

Reed was placed under arrest for suspicion of operating under the influence and taken to Penobscot County Jail for an Intoxilyzer test. He was charged with OUI.

Lights out and under arrest

BREWER  Driving without headlights is a good way of calling attention to yourself after dark. 

On March 14, around 11:17 p.m. Officer Eduardo Benjamin stopped a vehicle for driving without headlights. Nicholas Muncey, 27, of Amherst, was a passenger in the vehicle and was found to have consumed alcohol, which violated his bail conditions. Muncey was also in possession of a suspended driver's license. He was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

How many roads must a man walk down?

ORONO  An Orono man was arrested after allegedly crashing a car and then overstepping during the field sobriety test.

On March 15, a citizen reported an erratic driver on Forrest Avenue near the traffic circle. Officer Sarah Exley went to investigate and located a vehicle that had bounced off the left hand snowbank a couple of times before becoming stuck in the right-hand snow bank.

The officer spoke to the driver and noted signs of intoxication. During one of the field sobriety tests, the man reportedly lost count of how many steps he was supposed to take. He asked Exley about it, saying he thought she told him eight steps, then 11, finally settling on 21. During the test, Exley stopped the man after he took 24 steps (the correct number of steps is nine). 

He was placed under arrest and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

ORRINGTON - An alleged burglar got stuck in the snow in Orrington last week while trying to make a clean getaway. The Penobscot County Sheriff's Office was called to Kings Mountain RC, a remote control business, located on Center Drive in Orrington on Thursday, March 13 when the business's owner heard his security alarms going off. While officers were on their way, a second call came in to the Sheriff's Office from a neighbor reporting a suspicious vehicle was stuck in store's driveway. When the owner got there, he blocked the suspect in until authorities arrived. Moments later, police arrested 30-year-old Scott Buck of Howland, who admitted to the break in. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail while close to $1,100 worth of equipment belonging to the business was recovered from his truck.
