Bar Harbor man summoned for criminal speeding after allegedly rushing home to save gas

By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

HOLDEN, Maine — A Bar Harbor man who told an officer he was rushing home because he was low on fuel was summoned for criminal speeding early Monday, according to police.

Shortly before 3 a.m., Officer Bruce Graybill clocked a silver 2002 Volvo at 83 mph headed south on Main Road in Holden in a 45-mph zone, Holden Police Chief Gene Worcester said late Monday morning.

Graybill stopped the vehicle, which was driven by Christian Emigh-Doyle, 21. Emigh-Doyle told Graybill he was speeding home because his vehicle was running low on gas.

Worcester said he wasn’t sure why Emigh-Doyle would have thought speeding would help him get home on what gas he had left.

“Going that fast just sucks up more,” the police chief noted.

Emigh-Doyle received a summons for Class E criminal speeding.
