Man allegedly leads police on chase around Bath


BATH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police arrested a man after he led an officer on a high speed chase Wednesday.

Around 8 p.m. an officer saw a vehicle allegedly driving through the Brackett's Market parking lot at a high speed and in an "erratic" manner, with its tires spinning as it turned onto Commercial Street. The officer pursued the vehicle to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle allegedly accelerated, and then turned onto Lambard Street.

The officer recognized the vehicle and knew the Gray 2005 Cadillac STS belong to Rayon Wilson. About 45 minutes earlier, police said they had dealt with Wilson after he got kicked out of a local bar. Police said they had warned him not to drive because it appeared he was intoxicated at that time.
