South Portland man faces charge of driving 111 mph

SOUTH PORTLAND — Life in the fast lane led to a jail in South Paris last week for a South Portland man.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said Adam Maietta, 20, was arrested by Maine State Trooper Thomas Welch in the Oxford County town of Brownfield after Welch allegedly clocked Maietta's speed on Route 113 at 111 mph.

McCausland said Maietta told the trooper he was delivering a rented Chevrolet Camaro to a customer in North Conway, N.H. The speed limit where Maietta was stopped is 55 mph.

McCausland said Maietta was charged with criminal speeding and taken to the Oxford County Jail. The date and time of Maietta's arrest were not provided.
