Police searching for man who crashed car into Presque Isle house

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Law enforcement agencies in central Aroostook County are on the lookout for a 22-year-old man wanted on probation violations who stole a car and crashed it before escaping on foot Saturday.  

Presque Isle Police Chief Matt Irwin said the incident started when the police responded to a report of a fight at an apartment on State Street.

One of the individuals there, 22-year-old Brandon Green, had an active arrest warrant for probation revocation and dove out of a second-story window, Irwin said.

Green initially fled on foot, then stole a car. He fled in the car, and a Maine State Police trooper later located him in the Mapleton area, Irwin said.

Green then led the trooper on a chase into Presque Isle that ended with a crash into a home at the intersection of Mechanic Street and Coburn Avenue, Irwin said.

After the crash, Green fled on foot and as of noon Monday, has not been located, Irwin said.

Irwin said that charges from the Presque Isle Police Department are pending and that charges will likely be filed by the Maine State Police as well.
