A motorcyclist faces several charges after leading police on a chase in Blue Hill Sunday that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

Nickolas Grivois, 32, was arrested and charged with eluding an officer and driving to endanger among other charges.

Officers activated their lights and sirens and followed the motorcycle traveling north at a high rate of speed on Pleasant Street in Blue Hill, according to a news release from the Hancock County Sheriff's Office.

The operator of the motorcycle continued to accelerate, police said, and reached speeds above 100 miles per hour. The motorcycle continued into Orland onto Front Ridge Road, and made a right turn onto Acadia Highway towards the South. The motorcycle then turned into a residence in Orland, and the operator fled into a nearby wooded area, police said.

Police say they arrested Grivois, who is listed as a transient, after a search of the nearby wooded area.

Grivois is scheduled to appear at the Ellsworth Unified Criminal Court at a later date to answer to his charges.
