Maine State Police have arrested the driver of a pickup truck who allegedly attacked a couple and their two children Sunday in Sedgwick.

Troopers were called to a home on Graytown Road around 7 p.m. to investigate what they are calling a road rage incident, state police said in a release posted on their Facebook page.

The family reported that a man in a black pickup truck engaged in a “physical confrontation” with them in their driveway before driving away, according to troopers Owen Reed and Hunter Belanger.

“The victims were treated and released from a local hospital with minor injuries,” state police said.

An investigation led police to the suspect’s vehicle on Tuesday. Richard Bubar, 43, of Deer Isle was arrested Tuesday night and charged him with Class B aggravated assault, News Center Maine (WCSH/WLBZ) reported.

Bubar was initially taken to the Hancock County Jail, but had been released by Wednesday night, according to a jail intake worker.

The incident has been referred to the District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution. State police did not provide any additional information on what might have provoked the confrontation.
