ELLSWORTH – Nate Young, 54, was arrested for drunk driving last night in Ellsworth.
Police said they received a report of an erratic driver on High Street around 7:45 p.m..
Young was pulled over and charged with OUI and has since been released on bail.
Young had been the police chief of Bar Harbor for many years until he was discovered slumped over the steering wheel of his personal vehicle in 2013.
The town launched an investigation and fired Young after determining he had been drinking and driving.
Young filed a discrimination suit against the town, but it was later dismissed when a judge determined the town did not act inappropriately when it terminated Young.
