Ellsworth motorist arrested for failing to brake for police 

TRENTON - A motorist traveling along Oak Point Road in Trenton on Saturday night kept at least one resident from getting a good night's sleep.

The Hancock County Sheriff's Office says that just after 1 a.m. on Sept. 22, they responded to a complaint made by an Oak Point Road resident that a vehicle was squealing its tires. While two deputies were in the resident's driveway, they saw the suspect's vehicle and immediately activated the emergency blue lights. Instead of coming to a stop, however, authorities said the vehicle sped toward Dep. Chris Sargent on Route 3.

Jason Hinckley, of Ellsworth, eventually stopped at the Trenton IGA where he was arrested for failure to stop for a police officer, operation of a motor vehicle with a prior habitual offender conviction, OUI and violation of bail. Hinckley was then transported to Hancock County Jail.

A real ladies' man (if you count robbing women)

BANGOR An area man is facing a slew of charges after going on an alleged crime spree.

A woman called police to report that a man, later identified as Brian Swett, 31, no fixed address, had ordered her out of her car before stealing it. Swett allegedly became involved in a high-speed chase with Maine State Troopers before crashing the vehicle on I-95 while attempting to exit the highway. Maine State Police reported that he was attempting to exit the interstate by going on a ramp in the wrong direction and ended up crashing into a vehicle that was already on the ramp. A Maine State Police detective then boxed Swett in, preventing him from leaving. He was arrested and charged with felony robbery, three other felonies and four misdemeanors, including driving to endanger and eluding a police officer.

Police learned that earlier that morning around 2 a.m. that Swett had allegedly stolen a cell phone from another woman. She reportedly chased him on foot, but he got away. When she spotted him a few hours later, she confronted Swett and demanded her cell phone back, according to police. He again took off running and she again gave chase. Swett reportedly ducked around a corner, and when she followed him he kicked her, knocking her to the ground. Police said he kicked her several times while she was still on the ground before he ran off.

Officer Mike Brennan interviewed Swett while he was incarcerated at Penobscot County Jail, and he was also charged with another count of felony robbery.

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.
