BATH — An off-duty Bath police officer interrupted his fitness competition training workout to arrest a drunk driver Wednesday night.

Police Chief Michael Field said Detective Sgt. Robert Savary and Detective David Beauregard were training with their Halls’ Extreme Physical Fitness team outside Halls Olympic Martial Arts Center on Centre Street when a silver Dodge sedan with a blown-out right front tire careened through a parking lot filled with pedestrians. The lot is shared with Amatos Restaurant.

Savary jumped into the vehicle of another off-duty police officer, Ted Raedel, who had just arrived for a Tae Kwon Do class, and followed the vehicle to the Midcoast Federal Credit Union.

Charles Zantow, 38, of Bath, was arrested and charged with operating under the influence, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, and operating a motor vehicle without a license. Witnesses said Zantow’s vehicle struck a parked minivan. He was released on $1,500 bail.

Halls’ Extreme Physical Fitness team was training for the Sept. 25 Cross Fit 321 competition in Brunswick, a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project.
