8/6 at 2:11 p.m. The Brunswick Police Department received a call from a Cumberland County Sherriff’s officer regarding a motorcyclist who had refused a traffic stop in Harpswell. At 3:14 p.m. Officer Jason McCarthy spotted the man, Abraham Chipman, 35, of Maine Street, who now was behind the wheel of a truck. McCarthy pulled him over, but as McCarthy got out of his cruiser, Chipman spun his tires and drove off. A low-speed, stop-and-go chase followed through Brunswick on Potter Street, Union Street and Page Street, all the way to Park View Hospital. After cruisers blocked Chipman in the parking lot, he locked the doors to his truck, grabbed a clam rake and became aggressive, threatening the officers. Officer McCarthy was able to take control of Chipman and he was transported to Mid Coast Hospital for a mental health evaluation. McCarthy sustained a cut requiring stitches on his arm during the altercation, and Chipman came away with some scratches. He was ultimately charged with refusing to submit to arrest or detention, failing to stop for an officer and driving to endanger.
