A West Gardiner man was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly driving a sport utility vehicle into two people Tuesday night in Gardiner.
The two injured people were taken to the hospital and the driver, 20-year-old Dakota Brann, was arrested on two counts of elevated aggravated assault, said Gardiner Police Chief James Toman. He was taken to the Kennebec County jail.
Brann also has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of aggravated driving to endanger, according to a complaint filed by prosecutors at the Capital Judicial Center. His bail was set at $30,000.
The alleged assault was reported at 6:04 p.m. Tuesday after Brann got into an argument with a man and woman near their home on Winter Street in Gardiner, Toman said.
Brann left the scene in a 2005 Cadillac
