The Penobscot County Deputy Sheriff responded to a Main Road, Eddington, residence on Sunday, November 19, 2023, after observing Adam Gray, 40, of Eddington, getting out of a taxi at the property. The deputy knew that Gray had five active warrants.

Gray refused to listen to the deputy and walked into the residence. The deputy tried to pursue Gray but was physically held back by Ashley Sargent, 38, of Eddington. Sargent's actions prevented the deputy from pursuing Gray, and he was able to leave the residence, but the sheriff's office was unable to find him. Ashley Sargent was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail. Sargent was charged with hindering apprehension, assault, and disorderly conduct.

The Bangor police department, the Maine State Police, and the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office were able to locate Adam Gray the following day, November 20, 2023, inside a vehicle on Davis Road in Bangor. Gray was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Penobscot County Jail. Gray was charged with five active arrest warrants, violation of condition of release, and possession of scheduled drugs.
