BANGOR — A robbery suspect who attempted to elude police by driving onto a municipal golf course and circling the fairways has been arrested.

Bangor police say 46-year-old Jeffrey Macy of Eastbrook has been charged with felony, drug and other charges after being apprehended at Bangor Municipal Golf Course on Sunday.

Officers responding to a robbery at a Rite Aid drug store at about 3:45 p.m. attempted to stop Macy’s car, but he drove to the golf course and began circling the 17th and 18th fairways. At one point, he struck a Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a police sergeant.

An officer used his vehicle to puncture the left front wheel of Macy’s car, rendering it immobile.

Damages estimates for the golf course were not immediately known.
