A New York man was charged with passing a roadblock after allegedly leading Wells police on a low-speed chase through three towns Sunday night.

Robert Sherwood, 50, of Ronkonkoma, N.Y., was arrested following what police described as a struggle.

Police received a complaint at 9:55 p.m. Sunday of an erratic driver on Route 1 near Mike’s Clam Shack in Wells. Police said the man refused to stop and drove north into Kennebunk before coming back into Wells.

Sherwood drove over two spike mats and lost three tires, but continued to drive south on Route 1 into Ogunquit, police said. Sherwood drove a total of 18 miles at low speeds before crashing into a snowbank as he attempted to turn onto Cherry Lane in Ogunquit.

Sherwood was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. after struggling with officers, according to police.

He was charged with passing a roadblock, and police say Sherwood could face additional charges.

Wells police will ask the district attorney to pursue grand jury indictments on charges of operating under the influence, operating without a license, violating conditions of release and refusing to submit to arrest.

Sherwood was taken to York County Jail in Alfred and was was being held on bail Monday.
