SCARBOROUGH, Maine — Scarborough police are reviewing the chase of a motorcyclist that reached speeds of 100 mph through four communities last week to determine whether it complied with the department's policy.

The chase, which police say started as a traffic stop for a faulty headlight, led to the arrest in Portland of 26-year-old Derek Caruso, on charges of criminal speeding, eluding police, driving with a suspended license and refusing to submit to arrest.
