MARSHFIELD — A 46-year-old Calais woman was arrested on multiple charges following a bizarre incident in Marshfield on Saturday.

Police say they were patrolling US Route 2 at around 6:10 p.m. when they witnessed a vehicle passing another vehicle in the oncoming lane around a blind curve at a high rate of speed.

The driver was identified as Stephanie Panagapoulos.

Police say while gathering information from Panagapoulos, the driver of the vehicle she had passed stopped and informed them that she had hit his vehicle in the process.

According to the report, while police spoke to the victim Panagapoulos got out of her vehicle, urinated in the parking lot, returned to her vehicle, and sped off before she was released from the traffic stop.

Due to the amount of traffic on the road police decided that it was unsafe to pursue her at that time.

They were later notified that Panagapoulos had crashed a second time just up the road, this time into a home, before taking off on foot.

She was located near the crash scene in the woods.

Police arrested Panagapoulos for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, negligent operation, disorderly conduct, criminal threatening, attempting to elude a police officer, and resisting arrest.

She was taken into custody, transported to the Middlesex barracks for processing and later Central Vermont Hospital to be medically cleared.

She was released with a citation to appear in court on September 24.
