UNITY, Maine — A Massachusetts man was arrested early Saturday morning after a woman called police to report a suspicious person lurking around her Stagecoach Road house.

The responding officer did not find the man right away, but he did locate a wrecked vehicle that had hit a tree, according to Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

The officer then spotted Nicholas H. Ryan, 29, of Pembroke, Mass., who was in the woods.

Ryan’s blood alcohol content tested at 0.19 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

He was arrested at 3 a.m. and charged with criminal mischief, operating under the influence and leaving the scene of a property damage crash, Trafton said.
