Lobster spill in Hampden slows traffic

HAMPDEN - A load of lobster had a bumpy commute on their way to Prince Edward Island this weekend.

On Sunday, July 29, an 18-wheeler driven by Jen Meadows of Gardiner rolled over at the intersection of Route 202 and the Coldbrook Road when the load of crustaceans shifted.

"One moment I was on all 18 and the next minute I'm on nothing," said Meadows, who has been a truck driver for the past nine years. Fortunately, she was not injured during the accident.

Hampden police directed traffic around the rollover and stayed on the scene while another truck came to salvage as many of the lobsters as possible.

Alleged burglar obsessed with Coe Building in Bangor 

BANGOR - There is just something about the Coe Building on Columbia Street in Bangor that seems to be attracting the wrong type of customer - or customers.

Police say over the weekend, four businesses were either damaged or burglarized within that stretch of property located between Main and Cross Streets. Officers spoke to a complainant at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 21, who discovered the building had been broken into. Both the Pulse Marketing Agency and Hometown Newspapers, LLC, informed police that more than $4,000 of equipment was missing from each business. Two other businesses, which authorities say also appear to have been broken into sometime Friday night or early Saturday morning, reported none of their property had been taken. Bangor police say the person or persons responsible for the break-in caused another $2,000 in damages.

In the past few weeks, both Northstar Photography and The Sweetest Thing on Columbia Street have reported similar incidents happening at their places of employment. Bangor's Criminal Investigations Division is now handling the case. Anyone with information about the burglaries is urged to call the department at 947-7382. Those who wish to remain anonymous should press 6 to activate the tip line.

Ted Nugent's drummer arrested for stealing golf cart

BANGOR - While concert goers were enjoying the sounds of Styx and REO Speedwagon Sunday night at the Waterfront Concerts, Bangor police were trying to stop Ted Nugent's drummer, 55-year-old Mick Brown, who was allegedly driving a stolen golf cart recklessly near the concert grounds. Nugent was the opening act in last weekend's Midwest Rock-n-Roll Express Tour.

Officers Steve Jordan and Jim Dearing were on duty at the concert when security personnel approached them around 9:45 p.m. and told them that Brown, who was intoxicated, had allegedly stolen a gold golf cart used by Waterfront Concerts and was driving it around the Front Street area. Although several people had attempted to stop the drummer, he reportedly sped away. A few moments later, Jordan spotted the golf cart near the Railroad Street crossing, with two women also on board. A second attempt to stop Brown failed when he accelerated past authorities. Finally, a security officer got close enough to stop the musician, but not before allegedly being shoved by Brown. The Arizona native was physically removed from the cart by authorities, placed on the ground and arrested.

Brown was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $4,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 15.

TRENTON - A Franklin man was taken into custody after leaving the scene of an accident and speeding away from police.

Bar Harbor police contacted state police in Ellsworth on Friday, asking them to look out for a motorcycle that fled the scene of an accident in Bar Harbor. Trooper Greg Roy later spotted the motorcyclist on Route 3 in Trenton. When he attempted to stop the driver, the motorcyclist sped up. After a two mile chase, the bike's operator lost control while attempting to turn onto the Jordan River Road in Trenton, but that didn't keep him from moving. The driver, who was later identified as 24-year-old Brandon Brown, tried to drive away from police again before he was forcefully removed from the motorcycle by Tpr. Roy.

Brown was arrested and charged with eluding an officer, operating under the influence, resisting arrest, criminal speed, driving to endanger, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. He was also cited for having no insurance and an expired inspection sticker.
