Police Chase Ensues After Traffic Stop For Inspection Sticker in Fairfield, Maine
According to WGME 13, a simple traffic stop for a Maine State inspection sticker violation turned into much more on Monday in the town of Fairfield, Maine.
What seemingly would have been a minor infraction for a missing inspection sticker quickly turned into a police pursuit after officers attempted to stop a truck on Savage Street for vehicle defects and a missing sticker.
The driver decided to flee instead of pulling over. This led police to chase the vehicle down multiple area streets in Fairfield. Eventually, the truck pulled into a residence on Silver Street where it's being reported that a passenger got out and fled from the truck.
Police were then able to successfully take the driver, 18-year-old Jeremiah Cyr, into custody. Cyr was subsequently charged with driving to endanger, eluding police, operating an uninspected vehicle and driving after suspension.
Cyr was then taken to Madison where he was booked into the Somerset County Jail.
