According to a press release from the Maine State Police, 28 year old Paul Johnston is facing charges of eluding an officer, violation of conditional release, criminal speed, OAS, and Driving to Endanger.

The incident started on Thursday (October 15th) with the theft of a GMC Sierra in Bangor and ended with a high speed chase that ended in Carmel.

According to the press release:

"Earlier in the day, Bangor Police Department took a report of a stolen 2015 GMC Sierra and attempted to stop it on Broadway.  Johnston fled Bangor officers, eventually getting onto Interstate 95 in Bangor before getting off onto Coldbrook Road in Hermon. Maine State Troopers located the stolen vehicle and pursued through Hermon on Route 2 before Penobscot County Sheriff's deputies successfully spiked the stolen vehicle's tires in Carmel.  Troopers were able to block the truck in, slowing it to a stop before arresting Johnston, the lone occupant."

If anyone has additional details that would help law enforcement with the case, they are asked to call State Police Troop E at 207.973.3700  extension 9.
