GRAY — A police K-9 team tracked a Gray man, who had fled from police, to his hiding spot 50 feet up in a tree early Wednesday morning.

Police charged Weston Wing, 30, of Gray with eluding an officer, leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license for being a habitual offender.

Windham police Officer Jim Cook spotted a car going 65 mph in a 50 mph zone toward Gray on Route 202 at 12:11 a.m.

The driver refused to pull over, turned onto Route 115, then crashed near the intersection with Campbell Shore Road.

The driver ran a short distance down Campbell Shore Road and into the woods but Cook got a description of his clothing.

A police dog with Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office was used to track the driver and he was found hiding high up in the branches of a tree.

Wing has an extensive history of driving violations including about 20 license suspensions over the past 10 years, said Windham Lt. Jim Boudreau.
