Lewiston Man Facing Charges for Police Chase

Jeselskis MotorcycleA Lewiston Man is facing multiple charges after leading police on a chase while driving a motorcycle.

On April 24th, 2021, Trooper Tyler Nadeau was assisting Androscoggin County Sheriffs Office with a traffic stop on Route 202 in Greene. The Deputy attempted to stop a group on motorcycles driving aggressively. Only one of the three motorcycle stopped and the other two continued towards Leeds. Several minutes later one of the suspect motorcycles showed back up to the scene of the traffic stop. 

Trooper Nadeau saw the suspect motorcycle did not have a registration plate. Trooper Nadeau attempted to stop the motorcycle and the driver took off at a high rate of speed. Trooper Nadeau pursued the motorcycle for several miles until speeds were to dangerous to continue the pursuit. The driver continued to do multi vehicle passes in the oncoming lane and his speeds were clocked at 154mph. 

Several minutes later Trooper Nadeau located the suspect motorcycle in the town of Leeds. The driver again refused to stop and continued south bound on Route 202, towards Lewiston. Deputies in the Greene area clocked the suspect motorcycle at 135mph and started a pursuit. The pursuit was quickly terminated due to the speeds.

Hours later, Trooper Nadeau and several Deputies were able to identify the suspect as Devin Jeselskis of Lewiston. Mr. Jeselskis was located standing in the driveway of a residence in Auburn. After a short foot chase, Mr. Jelelski ran to a near by apartment building. Mr. Jeselskis surrendered from the apartment building and was taken into custody by Trooper Nadeau without incident. 

Mr. Jeselskis was charged by MSP with the following crimes:
1.    Eluding Class C Felony 
2.    Driving to Endanger Class C Felony 
3.    Criminal Speed Class E
4.    Operating without a License Class E
5.    Operating after Suspension Class E
6.    Several traffic citations 

A special “Thank You” to the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this case. This incident is still under investigation and the Sheriff’s Office also charged Mr. Jeselskis with several crimes.
