An officer on patrol watched a vehicle leave from All-Town Market after seeing the driver put a pack of beer in the back seat. The vehicle left the gas station at high speed without stopping at the stop sign. The officer stopped the car on Park St. and the driver, a 19-year-old male, smelled of alcohol so the officer performed a sobriety test and seized beer from the backseat. The officer issued an intoxilyzer test at the station and he was taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor with the charges of Operating under the influence, operating a vehicle without a license and illegal transport of alcohol by a minor.
