A 26-year-old Hollis man is facing multiple charges after police say he drove his ATV in the road and crashed when a deputy tried to stop him.

A deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Office spotted Max Morganstern driving an ATV on Old Alfred Road in Waterboro around 8:15 p.m. Thursday. After the deputy stopped the ATV and started to exit his cruiser, Morganstern sped off, police said.

The ATV traveled about two-tenths of a mile before turning into the entrance of Massabesic Middle School, where it crashed.

Morganstern was arrested without incident and taken to York County Jail. He was charged with failure to stop for a law enforcement officer, reckless operation of an ATV and operating an unregistered ATV.

Morganstern’s bail was set at $400 cash. He was scheduled for a video arraignment Friday morning.
