A tense situation that had folks in Otis on edge this morning has come to a peaceful end.

According to State Police Spokeswoman Shannon Moss, that situation started late last night and went on through the early Friday morning hours.

"On Thursday, May 19, 2022 at approximately 10:30 p.m. the Maine State Police responded to a residence in Otis for the report of a vehicle crash. During the investigation, the Tactical Team and Crisis Negotiation Team responded as well. At approximately 6:00 a.m. 28-year-old Randy Spencer Jr of Otis was arrested on multiple felony warrants without incident."

Moss says Spencer was transported to the Hancock County Jail.

This is the second time this month that State Police negotiators have helped diffuse a tough situation and lead it to a peaceful conclusion. Earlier this month, they also aided in a situation in Greenbush.
