BATH, Maine — A 28-year-old Dresden man allegedly seen stumbling out of Club 737 on Washington Street and driving off Monday afternoon was arrested after leading Bath police on a short chase through Woolwich.
Patrick Bailey was charged with failure to stop for an officer and operating under the influence.
After a passerby reported seeing a man leave the bar — formerly the Riverside Pub — and drive away just before 4:30 p.m., Bath Police Sgt. Nathan Gould located the car on the Sagadahoc Bridge and followed it to Route 127 in Woolwich, Lt. Robert Savary said Tuesday.
Gould followed the car at 55 miles per hour along the winding road, but Bailey allegedly continued for several miles before stopping, according to Savary.
“Evidently he was all over the road, and back and forth over the yellow line,” Savary said. “Sgt. Gould said it seemed like a pretty dangerous situation … he had his lights going to warn other cars to pull over to the side of the road.”
Bailey was released from the Bath police station on $500 unsecured bail. He is scheduled to appear in West Bath District Court on May 6.
