Man faces second OUI charge in 8 days

Brewer police arrested a local man on a drunken driving charge for the second time in eight days Saturday afternoon after receiving a tip from Bangor police that he had just left a business on Union Street in Bangor in a green GMC pickup truck and that he likely was intoxicated.

Shortly after receiving the information, Brewer police Cpl. Anthony Pinette found the driver, 36-year-old Lucas Williams, about 1:40 p.m. in the parking lot of a Brewer business, Brewer police Capt. Jason Moffitt said Monday, citing police reports.

Williams was taken to Penobscot County Jail on a drunken driving charge after he reportedly performed poorly on field sobriety tests,

According to Moffitt, Williams also was charged with violation of the conditions of his release from a Jan. 21 drunken driving arrest, also in Brewer. In that incident, Williams was arrested by Brewer police Officer Eduardo Oliveira after his pickup truck slid off Green Point Road and struck a snowbank, Moffitt said.

A former New Hampshire man now living in Brewer was arrested over the weekend after a Brewer police officer saw him take off at a high rate of speed from a North Main Street traffic light and cut into traffic in front of another vehicle.

At the time of the incident, shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday, Edward Janak, 36, was driving without a license, Brewer police Capt. Jason Moffitt said Monday, citing a police report submitted by Brewer police Sgt. David Lord. Janak had a suspended New Hampshire license.

Janak also was wanted on a warrant out of Penobscot County for unpaid fines and fees related to a theft charge, Moffitt said.
