BRUNSWICK, Maine — A man from Portland is facing charges after police say he crashed his car while driving intoxicated and then fled the scene.
Brunswick Police Chief Scott Stewart said in a release Friday that Randy Boucher, 47, has been charged with the following:
- Leaving the scene of a property damage accident – class E
- Operating under the influence (drugs) – class D
- Violating conditions of release – class E
The crash happened around 10:40 p.m. Thursday on Route 1 in Brunswick, according to Stewart.
Stewart said the Brunswick Emergency Communications Center received an operations complaint of a vehicle swerving all over the road, and ultimately crashing into the Route 1 median cable guardrails.
Stewart said when officers arrived on the scene, they learned the driver had fled. Officers began searching the area and a K9 unit from the Freeport Police Department was also called to assist, according to Stewart.
Boucher was found about a mile away from the crash scene and was arrested without incident, according to Stewart.
Boucher was taken to the Cumberland County Jail with “no bail allowed," Stewart said.
