LIMINGTON, Maine — A York County man is facing multiple charges after leading a sheriff’s deputy on a short pursuit Tuesday night, according to Sheriff William King.

Sgt. Steven Thistlewood had initiated a traffic stop on Stoy Daye, 47, of Baldwin due to a loud exhaust, but Doye fled, according to King.

After a three-minute pursuit, Daye’s vehicle left the road with the intent of eluding Thistlewood, but the vehicle got stuck in a mud hole, according to King.

Daye subsequently fled on foot into a beaver bog but was quickly taken into custody.

Daye was charged with failing to stop for a police officer, operating after suspension and illegal attachment of registration plates and taken to the York County Jail.

Daye’s bail was set at $450 and he was expected to have an arraignment Wednesday.
