A Skowhegan man is accused of stealing a car and leading police on a chase.
Authorities say a Chevy Cavalier was taken from a home on Pooler Avenue early Saturday morning.
An officer later spotted the car and attempted to pull it over, but the driver took off.
After a brief chase, police say 32 year old Thomas Bouchard stopped the vehicle, but he got out and fled on foot near the Sappi Paper Mill.
Police from several agencies gave chase and ending up using a taser on Bouchard to place him under arrest.
He’s now facing a number of charges including failing to stop for an officer, operating after suspension and unauthorized use of property.
