Hancock County Sheriff’s log week of Dec. 5

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies went to Family Dollar in Blue Hill Monday after getting a call about men fighting inside and then outside the store.

Deputy Chris Sargent said those involved had left before police arrived and the staff wasn’t able to identify them.

Family fight

Deputies investigated a fight at a Deer Isle residence Nov. 25 in which a firearm was “brandished,” Deputy Dakota Dupuis reported. But, no one was injured and no charges were filed.

Dupuis, Lt. Tim Cote and Deputy Jeff McFarland responded.

“After a brief investigation it was determined that the fight involved family members and that none of the parties wished to pursue any charges,” Dupuis said. “All parties were separated for the remainder of the night.”


Deer were out in force causing accidents for motorists in Blue Hill and Castine Monday, police reported.

A car struck a deer that entered the roadway on South Street in Blue Hill Monday, Sargent reported.

Kristi Scroger, 40, of Blue Hill was driving a 2007 Ford Focus, which sustained damage to its front driver’s side, the deputy said. Scroger was not injured.

A sport utility vehicle tried to maneuver around a group of deer that had run into the roadway but collided with one of the animals on Shore Road in Castine Monday, Deputy Brian Archer reported.

Danielle Wescott, 32, of Castine had been southbound in a 2012 Jeep Patriot, which sustained damage to the front driver’s corner, Archer said. Wescott wasn’t injured and she was able to drive from the scene.
