BELFAST, Maine — An area man was arrested this weekend after police received a call about a car off the road and found a female passenger having a seizure and an apparently intoxicated man who reportedly had been driving.
Tyson Serviskey, 22, of Searsport was arrested and charged with operating under the influence at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday on City Point Road.
Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham of the Belfast Police Department said Monday that Serviskey had a blood-alcohol level of 0.16 percent, or double the legal limit. The officer also found an almost-empty bottle of vodka on the driver’s side floor of the car, Cunningham said.
Serviskey told the officer that his female passenger had a history of seizures, but she also may have hit her head on the windshield, Cunningham said.
The woman, who was not identified, was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor by LifeFlight helicopter and placed in the intensive care unit, Cunningham said.
Serviskey was cooperative with police, he said.
Belfast police also said Monday that a man was arrested last week after he allegedly stole an ice cream scoop at a hardware store and used it to “cook up Adderall” in the store restroom.
The prescription medication is an amphetamine used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Amos A. Robbins, 30, of Swanville reportedly had gone to Jerry’s True Value Hardware on Tuesday, Nov. 16, and taken the scoop to the restroom, according to Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham of the Belfast Police Department.
He was charged with possession of scheduled drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer.
