By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

HAMPDEN, Maine — A Hampden man who pulled his vehicle over for no reason at all Thursday night caught the attention of police and was arrested when he was found to be intoxicated, Police Chief Joseph Rogers said Friday.

Charles Brown, 61, was driving on Main Road near the center of town when Hampden police Officer Bill Miller saw him pull to the side of the road and stop, according to Rogers.

“[Miller] didn’t know what [Brown’s] intentions were,” Rogers said.

Brown failed several roadside sobriety tests and was arrested and charged with operating under the influence, Rogers said. His blood alcohol level was 0.24, three times Maine’s legal limit of 0.08.

Brown was taken to Penobscot County Jail, where he remained Friday morning.
