BUCKSPORT — A Waldo County man is facing several charges after he allegedly eluded police at a high rate of speed last week.
Sgt. David Winchester said police initially received a report of an erratic driver traveling toward downtown Bucksport on Route 15 (River Road) on the night of June 14.
Officer Matthew Cyr attempted to stop the driver of the vehicle, later identified as 24-year-old Tyson S. Servisky of Stockton Springs, but Winchester said that Servisky chose not to stop.
Cyr pursued Servisky, but the 24-year-old was not located until later on when he was arrested by officers in Waldo County on prior charges.
Winchester said that as a result of his alleged actions in Bucksport, Servisky was additionally charged with driving to endanger, criminal speeding and eluding an officer.
On June 15, around 9 p.m., police received a report of an assault and theft on Buck Street.
According to Winchester, the items that were reported stolen have since been returned and the alleged assault remains under investigation.
