A Bangor man who was swinging a stick and stopped by a passing Bangor police officer Saturday night, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon when a butcher knife fell out of his shorts, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
When Keith Rhodes, 20, was placing the stick on the ground at about 9:15 p.m. the officer noticed part of a small carving-type knife sticking out of the waistband of his shorts, Edwards said. When the officer asked about that knife, Rhodes raised his hands and “that’s when the butcher knife fell from his pants,” Edwards said.
Rhodes, who did not give police a reason for carrying the two knives, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and taken to Penobscot County Jail. He later was released, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
