Well this is a bit of an interesting story, and one that actually goes back a couple of months. Now former Fryeburg Police Chief, Joshua Potvin, was at a town select board meeting back on February 27th of 2020. During the meeting, he decided he didn't want to stick around for the public comment portion.

Potvin messaged on of his officers to call him and say he was needed for an emergency. Sure enough, Potvin was then called out of the meeting to tend to an important matter. After leaving the meeting, Potvin drove to the Fryeburg Fairgrounds where he met up with the subordinate officer.

After arriving at the campground, the Chief saw a grounds crew employee getting into his car. Potvin then filed a false police report  that the man was a 'suspicious person'. Following a review, Potvin's license to be a law enforcement in Maine has been permanently revoked by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.
