BELFAST, Maine — A Bucksport woman was arrested and charged with multiple violations Monday after a convenience store clerk called police to report that a “definitely impaired” patron had gotten into the driver’s seat of a car and taken off.

Police located Katie Van Scoy, 31, as she was leaving the parking lot near the Family Dollar on Main Street, according to Officer Rick Smith of the Belfast Police Department.

An officer tried to flag Van Scoy down, but “she was so impaired, she just kept going, weaving all over the road,” Smith said Tuesday.

She drove in the direction of the waterfront, worrying officers because of the number of people around the downtown area, Smith said. Finally, Van Scoy pulled over near Front Street and Pierce Street, close to the pedestrian bridge.

She told the officer she had taken some prescription medication and was clearly impaired, Smith said.

Van Scoy was charged with operating under the influence with two prior convictions, failure to stop for a police officer, driving to endanger and operating after suspension.

She was taken to Waldo County Jail and was released on $1,000 secured bail later that night, Smith said.
