BANGOR, Maine — A man using a hypodermic needle in his car backed over an officer’s foot after being approached by police late Tuesday night, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.
Edwards said police have not caught the suspect, nor do they have his name. Officers Taylor Bagley and Joe Page found the man’s car abandoned in the parking lot of the Ranger Inn on outer Hammond Street shortly after he drove away, the sergeant said, and the car has since been towed to the police station for processing.
Bagley, who approached and startled the suspect on First Street at 11:35 p.m., did not need medical attention because the car’s tire hit just the tip of his foot, Edwards said. (Dylan Martin, BDN)
