Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Feb. 7

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Archer investigated an incident in which a man accidentally shot himself with a pellet gun at a Surry residence Sunday.

“After an investigation it was determined that no law enforcement action would be taken,” Archer said.


Several mailboxes at a Blue Hill business were damaged during the overnight hours Sunday into Monday, Deputy Chris Sargent reported.


Deputy Dan Harlan handled a Jan. 29 complaint about a Deer Isle man, 27, threatening another Deer Isle man, 64.


A car lost control on a wet roadway on a curve, which caused the car to spin around in the roadway, travel backward and strike a parked car, pushing it into a utility pole on Shore Road in Castine Jan. 30, police said.

Harlan said Zachary Caron, 20, of Bangor was driving a 2009 Hyundai, which he was able to drive from the scene.

Meanwhile the parked car, a 2003 Honda that belongs to Joel Bennett, 21, of Castine, had to be towed due to disabling damage. The car also had to be removed from the utility pole, Harlan said.

No one was injured.

A box truck struck the side mirror of a pickup truck that was northbound on the Deer Isle Bridge in Sedgwick Friday, Deputy Jeff McFarland reported.

Alison Whiting, 47, of Brooklin was driving a 2017 Ford F350, McFarland said.

“Alison was not injured and the box truck continued on without stopping,” the deputy said. “The damage to Alison’s pickup appeared to be non-reportable.”

Agency assist

Deputy David Lord helped the Southwest Harbor Police Department with a domestic disturbance Friday.

Archer served arrest warrants on Monday.

Karen Lewis, 51, of Brooksville was arrested on a warrant.
