State Police used a spike mat to stop a 60-year-old Biddeford man who they say led troopers on a 36- mile chase on the Maine Turnpike today.

Peter Hamilton, 60, was driving a Toyota on the turnpike just past noon in New Gloucester when a trooper tried to pull him over for speeding in the area of the toll booth, police said.

Hamilton refused to stop and led police on a chase southbound until mile 33 in Biddeford where a trooper deployed a spike mat that deflated all four of the car’s tires. A trooper then used a cruiser to push Hamilton’s car off the road.

Police say Hamilton resisted arrest and he was bitten by a police dog that was used on the apprehension. Police did not describe the severity of the injury. He faces a number of charges once he is released from the hospital, police said.
