By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BREWER, Maine — A Bangor man riding a motorcycle who failed to come to a stop at a Brewer intersection wound up facing multiple charges Thursday after police pursued him in a low-speed chase.

Brewer officers had attempted to stop 20-year-old Caleb Squires after he ran a stop sign at the intersection of Parker and East Summer Streets in Brewer, according to Brewer police Capt. Chris Martin.

Squires led police on a low-speed pursuit which crossed the river into Bangor, Martin said. Even though police didn’t capture Squires, Bangor police located the ditched motorcycle near the Kenduskeag Stream on Valley Avenue. Martin said the pursuit began just after 4 p.m.

“The driver was observed running up a hill in that area,” said Martin.

Later Thursday afternoon, Brewer police received a call from a man who turned out to be Squires reporting that his motorcycle had been stolen, Martin said.

Squires was interviewed by Brewer police, and it was determined that he was the driver and he was charged with failure to stop for a police officer, failure to provide insurance, imprudent speed and failure to stop for a red light, Martin said. He was not arrested.
