KITTERY, Maine (WPRI) — Police in Maine cited a Fairhaven man over the weekend after they say he caught driving a motorized scooter while using a cell phone as a headlight.
According to Maine State Police’s Facebook page, troopers stopped the 26-year-old man who they said was driving on the Maine Turnpike in Kittery without headlights.
Police said the man told them he traveled from New Bedford on the scooter and he was using his cell phone as a headlight. Police said he did not have a valid driver’s license and the scooter was not registered.
Police said the driver was summonsed for operating without a license and operating an unregistered vehicle. He was also given a warning for using the scooter on the Maine Turnpike, where they are prohibited.
While police didn’t reveal why the man was traveling in the middle of the night, they said his reason was “good enough” for Troopers to help him out by giving him a ride to his destination nearby.
