BANGOR, Maine — A Vermont man was arrested on several charges Sunday night after he reportedly created a traffic disturbance on Union Street.

Robert Dorn-Devoe, 19, of Rutland, Vt., was charged with obstructing a public way, disorderly conduct and failure to provide police his name and date of birth, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Edwards said that Dorn-Devoe came to the attention of Bangor police Officer Richard Polk after he reportedly yelled and swore at passing motorists while standing in the roadway near Captain Nick’s restaurant about 10 p.m.

Dorn-Devoe, whom police said was not carrying identification and would not provide his name or date of birth when prompted by police, was identified by a passer-by who recognized him, Edwards said.

After his arrest, Dorn-Devoe was taken to Penobscot County Jail. He was released on bail Monday after an appearance at the Penobscot Judicial Center, a jail official confirmed.
