2 fires, police chase, lead to Maine man’s arrest
MINOT, Maine (AP) — A Minot man faces charges after allegedly burning down his home and a mobile home belonging to his estranged wife, then leading police in car chases reaching high speeds.
The Sun Journal of Lewiston (http://bit.ly/18f8WHr ) says 44-year-old Michael Callahan was charged with violation of bail conditions and eluding an officer, but more charges are expected. Last December, Callahan held police at bay during a six-hour standoff during which dozens of shots were fired. No one was injured.
In Friday’s case, police say Callahan led a sheriff’s deputy on a chase in Minot into Mechanic Falls, and at one point Callahan pulled over and tried to run down a deputy.
Callahan was taken to St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center in Lewiston for a mental evaluation after he surrendered in Hebron.
