A man from China is facing several charges after allegedly driving his vehicle on an ATV trail and destroying an ATV bridge. Just after midnight Sunday morning, Maine game wardens responded to a section of ATV trail between Pleasant View Ridge Road and Bog Brook Road in China. When game wardens arrived at about 2:30 AM, they found the operator and passenger still with the vehicle. The operator had attempted to drive his vehicle across an ATV bridge on an ATV trail and broke through, leaving his vehicle stranded.
The operator, Tyonek Thurlow, (26) from China, was issued three summonses to include Criminal Mischief (Class D), Attaching False Registration Plates (Class E), and Operating a Motor Vehicle on an ATV Trail (Civil violation). An ATV club representative stated they would be seeking restitution.
