Multiple Aroostook County Agencies Chase Down Domestic Violence Suspect [PHOTO]


A high-speed chase in Bridgewater leads to the arrest of a Caribou man for multiple charges including drug possession and domestic violence out of Fort Fairfield.

On Friday morning Fort Fairfield Police issued a bulletin to area police agencies requesting help looking for a black Nissan Altima driven by 23-year-old Samuel Ingersoll of Caribou. Police indicated they had probable cause to arrest Ingersoll for domestic violence assault.

Around 9:30 a.m. Deputy Sheriff Lieutenant Larry Goff found Ingersoll driving southbound on US Route 1 in Bridgewater by the Snow Road intersection, and gave chase. Ingersoll was alone in the vehicle and accelerated to reckless speeds and refused to stop for the Deputy Sheriff who was signaling with lights and siren, said Sheriff Darrell O. Crandall

Several additional Deputy Sheriffs, State Troopers, Border Patrol Agents and Houlton Police Officers moved into positions to intercept the pursuit. Ingersoll, for reasons yet unknown, eventually slowed and then stopped in the parking lot of the Blue Moose Restaurant in Monticello. After ignoring several commands to get out of his vehicle, he eventually complied and was taken into custody without further incident, said authorities.

Crandall said, Sheriff’s Deputies found methamphetamine and illegally possessed prescription drugs in the vehicle. Ingersoll had been using methamphetamine and was taken to the Aroostook County Jail.

The Sheriff’s Office charged Ingersoll with eluding an officer, operating after suspension, possession of methamphetamine and possession of prescription drugs. He was also charged with domestic violence assault and obstructing report of a crime on behalf of Fort Fairfield Police.

Further details on the latter charges (if there are to be any) will need to come from Chief Newell. Ingersoll remains at the Aroostook County Jail.
