PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Prosecutors say a man charged with crashing two law enforcement vehicles during a police chase that concluded with gunfire from 11 officers should be held without bail until his trial. Police say Gary Porter of Maine was arrested May 6 on a warrant for theft. He is accused of escaping police custody and setting off a chaotic series of events in rural Paris. Porter appeared in court via Zoom on Monday. Police say he stole a police vehicle, crashed it, then stole another before wrecking that one and being returned to custody after an exchange of gunfire.
