Smithfield Man Leads Augusta Police On 3 City Chase
Last night Adrian Sliva, 64, from Smithfield led Augusta police from Western Avenue to the Winthrop city limit. According to CentralMaine.com, Silva failed to stop after officers spotted him driving erratically. They followed him at slow speeds through the streets of the 3 towns with sirens and lights on. The officers say he stopped at the Winthrop line, but instead of exiting the vehicle, he turned the car around and headed by towards Augusta before pulling into the Mulligans parking lot and exiting the vehicle, allowing himself to be taken in.
While most chases are the result of warrants or driving under the influence, this was not the case. Silva has been released on $300 Bail.
