JAY — A Livermore Falls man who police say threatened motorists with a knife was arrested Tuesday.

Chad Stewart, 27, was charged with violating bail conditions and was issued a summons on a charge of criminal threatening, Jay police Chief Larry White Sr. said Thursday.

Sgt. Troy Young, White and a Wilton officer responded to complaints of an intoxicated man threatening motorists on Maxwell Road at or around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, White said. But when police arrived, no one was around.

Later in the day, at around 6:30 p.m., police received another complaint about a man walking in the middle of the roadway, just north of Maxwell Road on Route 4, obstructing a lane of traffic and threatening motorists with a knife, White said.

Officer Russell Adams and Young responded and found a man matching descriptions given by victims. Stewart allegedly had a pocket knife in his hand and threatened a female motorist and her passenger as she slowed to go around him, White said. Stewart ran after the car as the woman drove off, White said.

Adams arrested Stewart and took him to the Franklin County jail in Farmington.
