BANGOR, Maine — The owner of a local used car dealership owes $9,000 in overdue fines to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration for workplace safety violations in 2012 and 2013, according to government documents. The release of information by OSHA about businesses owned by Glenn A. Geiser Jr., 48, of Brewer added to a growing list of regulatory and legal actions taken against the owner of My Maine Ride. Files obtained from OSHA through a freedom of information request by the Bangor Daily News include complaints about Geiser’s current business, My Maine Ride, and his two previous businesses, Bumper2Bumper and Bangor Car Care. The documents show the safety violations at the businesses were corrected, but most of the fines were not paid. Geiser also faced criminal charges in Penobscot County over the use of counterfeit inspection stickers and is the subject of a civil lawsuit filed by the Maine attorney general’s office alleging unfair trade practices.
