A Maine man is facing multiple charges after an incident at the Augusta airport that ended with him allegedly smashing a gate with his truck.

Who Is the Suspect?

Deputy Chief Kevin D. Lully says Augusta Police responded to the Augusta State Airport at approximately 2:00 Tuesday afternoon in response to a report of a possible hit and run. By the time their investigation was over, Corey Adams, 28, was taken into custody on multiple charges. Responding officers went to the area of Western Avenue and Meadow Road where the alleged crash happened, but the driver of a silver Toyota Tundra fled the scene.

How Bad Was the Damage at the Airport?

According to WGME-TV, Adams allegedly drove his truck onto and across the airport tarmac, illegally, and then smashed through one of the gates. His truck was heavily damaged, including peeling back one corner of his hood. Reportedly, he had been involved in several other crashes prior to arriving at the airport. Officials have not commented on his motives. As police officers continued to search the area, they finally located the damaged Tundra and took Adams into custody. Adams has, most recently, been living in Skowhegan.

What is Adams Charged With?

He's charged with two counts of aggravated criminal mischief, violation of probation, operating a motor vehicle without a license, criminal trespass, and driving to endanger. Since Adams is currently on probation, officials say he's being held without bail at the Kennebec County Jail.
