The Jeep had left the area before the officer’s arrival, but it was seen on Main Street a short time later and police arrested the driver, William Mounts, 28, of Saco, Cline said. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving to endanger and criminal threatening.

Mounts posted bailed from the Buxton Police Department and is scheduled to appear at Biddeford District Court on July 17.
