WASHINGTON, Maine — A response to a report of an injured man ended up with that man being arrested as well as a woman at a local residence.
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on Crystal Lake Road in Washington Sunday morning to assist the Union Ambulance with a call of a 21-year-old male vomiting and bleeding profusely from a wound on his head. Police said they do not know how the man was injured.
Upon arrival, officers discovered that the injured person had left the residence and his whereabouts were unknown.
The officers then discovered that the injured man, Travis Condon of Washington, had three outstanding arrest warrants out for him.
After a brief search of the area by Deputies John Palmer and Paul Spear, Condon was spotted leaving a nearby residence and the two deputies had to chase him by foot into the woods to place him under arrest and get him the medical attention he needed.
Condon was taken by ambulance to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. Once treated and released from the hospital, Condon was arrested for the three warrants and also charged with refusing to submit to arrest, possession of drugs and violation of conditions of release, the department stated in a news release. The nature of the outstanding warrants was not immediately available Monday.
Further investigation revealed that the residence from which Condon fled into the woods had been checked by Palmer and the other occupant there, Felicia Glidden, 19, of Washington, stated he wasn’t there. Glidden later stated afterward that she knew Condon had arrest warrants on him and she didn’t want him to get arrested. Glidden also was arrested and charged with hindering apprehension, possession of liquor by a minor and violation of conditions of release, according to the sheriff’s office.
A deputy from Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and officers from the Waldoboro Police Department and Maine Marine Patrol responded to assist at the scene. This neighborhood has been the scene of several calls about rowdy behavior.
