BANGOR, Maine — Alert police officers on the lookout for drunk drivers early Saturday morning, caught and charged three people with operating under the influence within 30 minutes, according to Bangor police Sgt. Bob Bishop.
“We had three OUIs in rapid succession,” the sergeant said, crediting the skills of Officers Wade Betters and Shawn Green. “All three were low-level OUIs.”
The first stop was made at 1:12 a.m., shortly after bars closed, and the final one was made at 1:39 a.m.
Japan Soni, 25, a student living in Bangor, Jason McGowan, 24, of Bangor and Clifford Dupray, 26, of Dixmont all were charged with drunk driving and released from the police station, Bishop said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
