Youth Leads Police on Chase Through Bangor 

A car chase…turned into a foot chase…turned into a river chase for police in Bangor and Brewer.It all began around 12:30 Wednesday morning, when Bangor Police received a call about a stolen car on 6th Street.They say 20-year-old Alan Sapiel took the vehicle on a joyride.When officers caught up to him, Sapiel abandoned the car and took off on foot.He made it across the Brewer bridge, only to see Brewer Police officers waiting on the other side.That’s when Sapiel decided to jump in the Penobscot River.He swam as far as the Penobscot Plaza, before becoming tired and surrendering to officers.Sapiel was checked out by rescue crews, then taken to jail.
