Ellsworth Police Log Week of Aug. 9



ELLSWORTH — Police responded to a report of an overdose at Circle K on Aug. 1. They found a 21-year-old Sullivan resident unresponsive in the passenger seat of a parked car.

Another man was with the man at the time, according to a report of the incident, which did not specify who called 911. Maine State Police were also on scene.

Officers laid the man, Dylan Sargent, on the ground and administered a dose of Narcan, said Police Chief Glenn Moshier. After Sargent did not respond to the first dose, officers administered a second and then a third, to which Sargent did respond. He was transported to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital by County Ambulance but reportedly ran away from ambulance staff, said Moshier, and was located shortly thereafter by police.

Sargent was later arrested for violation of conditions of release after he refused to comply with his bail conditions, said Moshier. The driver of the vehicle was not charged.

Rear-ended

A car engine caught fire on Water Street on Aug. 4 around 8 a.m. after the car was rear-ended by another vehicle near the intersection with Deane Street, according to police.

A 2013 Chevrolet driven by Ellsworth resident Nycole Lafountain was reportedly stopped to make a left turn onto Deane Street when the car was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by Franklin resident Timothy Hobbs. Hobbs was “distracted by something that rolled out from under his seat,” according to the report.

Neither was injured in the accident, but the car driven by Hobbs had to be towed due to the damage.

Ellsworth firefighters responded to the car fire.

That night, Hancock resident Michelle Dugan was taken to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital after sustaining injuries to her head and stomach when she swerved to avoid a deer while eastbound on Main Street around 9 p.m., according to police.

The car driven by Dugan went off the road to the right, hitting a tree. It was towed due to disabling damage to the front.
