BANGOR, Maine — A local man who was kicked out of the Main Tavern in downtown Bangor got mad at his roommates early Sunday after they decided to stay and drink at the bar, Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Monday.

“He got kicked out [and] when they got home he was kind of pissed off they stayed,” he said.

Carl S. Dawes, 29, who has a lengthy criminal record, was so upset with the two men who had been staying with him that he pulled a knife and threatened them, the sergeant said.

“There were some threats made” and a butterfly-style knife was taken from Dawes, Edwards said.

Sgt. Brad Johnston and Officers Josh Wotton and Tim Brown went to Dawes’ First Street apartment at around 2:05 a.m. when someone reported a disorderly person with a knife.

Dawes was charged with trafficking in dangerous knives and criminal threatening and taken to Penobscot County Jail. He remained there Monday afternoon, a jail official said.

In October 2010, Dawes was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon in Bangor and sentenced to pay a $250 fine and in May 2010 was convicted of drinking in public and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and ordered to pay $350 in fines, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

Between 2002 and 2010, Dawes also has four assault convictions and other convictions for terrorizing, criminal mischief, burglary of motor vehicle, harassment by telephone, disorderly conduct, operating a vehicle without a license, violating condition of release and failure to appear after bailed, the court listings state.
