OLD TOWN, Maine — An Old Town man is facing multiple charges after a police pursuit late last month.

Scott Boobar, 20, was spotted driving on Main Street at 1:45 p.m. Oct. 28 by Old Town police Officer Josh Loring, who was aware Boobar did not have a license, according to Capt. Kyle Smart.

When Loring turned his cruiser around to pull Boobar over, Boobar sped up and turned onto Middle Street, Smart said.

Boobar’s vehicle was traveling as fast as 65 mph on the residential street, the captain noted.

The pursuit continued on Elm Street, Stillwater Avenue and Veazie Street, where Boobar took off on foot, according to Smart. Boobar was captured on Brunswick Street, he added.

A passenger in the vehicle who was not charged told police he wasn’t sure why Boobar ran from the law, Smart said.

Boobar was charged with eluding an officer, driving to endanger, refusing to submit to arrest, operating without a license and exceeding a posted speed limit by more than 30 mph.

Boobar remains at Penobscot County Jail.
