BANGOR, Maine — Penobscot Regional Communications Center issued an alert to be on the lookout Friday night after a hit-and-run was reported in Brewer and local officers found the damaged car on Elm Street, Bangor police Lt. Tom Reagan said Saturday.
“We were looking for a car with front end damage and located it at 160 Elm St.,” the lieutenant said. “The officers went over to talk to him about it and it escalated.”
Daniel Logan, 29, of Bangor was driving the damaged car and got upset when questioned, Reagan said.
“He spit on the officers twice,” he said.
Logan, who was found with a hypodermic needle, was arrested and charged with assault, refusing to submit to arrest, unsworn falsification and possession of scheduled drugs, Reagan said.
He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and remained there on Saturday, the lieutenant said.
Brewer police Cpl. Nelson Ferro is in charge of investigating the hit-and-run and may have additional charges for Logan, Reagan said, and Maine State Police Trooper Michael Johnson also was looking for him for another crime. Ferro and Johnson were not available for comment Saturday morning.
Logan also was charged with operating under the influence, violating his bail conditions, aggravated operating after revocation and unauthorized use of property, a jail official said Saturday.
