HAMPDEN, Maine — People on U.S. Route 202 reported seeing a vehicle moving erratically Sunday night, and when Hampden police Sgt. Dan Stewart caught up with it, the driver was swerving all over the road, Sgt. Chris Bailey said Monday.
Randall J. Woods, 44, of Winterport was stopped by Stewart at around 11 p.m. and was arrested, the sergeant said.
“His license was suspended as a habitual offender,” Bailey said. “It was determined that he was operating after revocation. Because of his driving history, it was a Class C offense. He also was out on bail.”
Woods was arrested and charged with felony operating after habitual offender revocation as well as violating his bail conditions. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail.
In the last three years, Woods has been convicted twice of unlawful drug trafficking and of failing to appear in court after being bailed, marijuana possession and the sale and use of drug paraphernalia, according to prior court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.
If convicted of the felony charge of operating after habitual offender revocation, Woods faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
