A Drunk Driver In Maine Nearly Avoids A Sheriff's Deputy After A Late-Night Collision

During a traffic stop in New Gloucester on Saturday night, Deputy Josiah Cushman was outside his car when the back of his cruiser, which was parked on the shoulder with its emergency lights flashing, was clipped by a man driving a car that had just left a bar, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department.

According to investigators, the driver’s blood alcohol percentage was three times the legal limit for operating a vehicle. The collision rendered both cars unusable, but according to authorities, neither Cushman nor the driver suffered any injuries.

On Sunday, the crash was still being investigated. The driver left jail on bond. If he had legal representation was a mystery.
