Two 32-year-old men were arrested on Sunday after allegedly causing a car accident and being disorderly.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Popham and Post Roads at around 5:00 pm. The driver allegedly ran through a red light while traveling east on Popham, colliding his BMW with a Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee’s driver claimed that the other person was “driving like a maniac.” Both cars suffered extensive damage.
The BMW’s driver did not have his license on him. When police attempted to issue a field sobriety test, his passenger began yelling at him to not submit to it. He stirred up such a ruckus that police had to restrain him in order to carry out their duties. He was eventually taken to a nearby police station, where he was detained in a cell and continued to be uncooperative, kicking the cell’s doors, yelling at the police, and even trying to tamper with the lock. He was charged with obstructing governmental administration.
As for the driver, it was discovered that his BAC was .17%. He was charged with running through a light, speeding, and DWI. He has been released on a $200 bail.
Luckily, is seems as though no one was injured as a result of this accident.
