OAKLAND, Maine — An 18-year-old man was arrested Saturday morning after an Oakland police officer clocked him on a radar gun going nearly double the posted speed limit.

Cory Goldrup of Oakland drove past Officer Michael Sayers on Middle Road going 82 mph in his Chevy Impala, according to Capt. Rick Stubbert.

Sayers was parked on the side of the road using a radar gun to check vehicle speeds when Goldrup drove by, Stubbert said.

“Eighty-two mph is excessive in a 45-[mph] zone,” Stubbert said.

The officer pulled Goldrup over and took him into custody without incident, Stubbert said. Goldrup was not found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Goldrup was charged with speeding more than 30 mph over a posted speed limit and taken to Kennebec County Jail, Stubbert said. His car was towed from the scene.
