SOUTH BURLINGTON, VERMONT — A Maine shooting suspect was arrested Friday evening after a high-speed chase in Vermont.
According to a press release from the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Marshals and South Burlington police arrested 32-year-old Christopher Farrow, who was wanted for multiple felony warrants stemming from a shooting in Skowhegan last year.
U.S. Marshals said 26-year-old Hailey Goeltz of Jericho, Vermont led police on a high-speed chase down Route 7 in South Burlington before stopping in front of a car wash. Both Farrow and Goeltz were ordered out of the car and arrested.
Local and state authorities in both Maine and Connecticut wanted Farrow on charges of illegal possession of a firearm, assault in the first degree, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, terrorizing, and reckless conduct. He was also wanted in Connecticut for a parole violation, according to U.S. Marshals.
U.S. Marshals said Farrow is being held on a $75,000 bail while waiting for court proceedings to be sent back to Connecticut, and Goeltz was released and will appear before a judge at a later date.
