Assistant fire chief pleads guilty to OUI

BANGOR, Maine — An assistant fire chief with the Bangor Fire Department has pleaded guilty to a charge of operating under the influence stemming from an incident in February.

Scott J. Bostock, 55, of Eddington was stopped by a Brewer police officer on Feb. 5 on suspicion of drunken driving, according to police reports. Earlier this month, he pleaded guilty to charges in 3rd District Court in Bangor. His license was suspended for 90 days, and he was levied a fine of $600.

Interim City Manager Bob Farrar said Thursday that Bostock was not on duty when he was pulled over and that the matter has been handled internally as far as the city is concerned.

“In situations like this, we look at each individual case to determine the appropriate level of action,” Farrar said.

Bostock, a 34-year veteran of the Bangor Fire Department, will remain an assistant chief, the manager said.
