UNITY, Maine — The second time the police were called wasn’t the charm for a New Hampshire man whose alleged antics caused him to be arrested and jailed early Sunday morning.

Christopher L. Rhames, 21, of Dunbarton, N.H., a former Unity College student, reportedly had shown up intoxicated and belligerent at a Unity home at 1:34 a.m. Sunday. He wanted to fight with the resident, but with the help of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and campus security guards, Rhames eventually calmed down and found a different place to stay for the night.

“[Police] told him that if they had to come back, he’d get arrested,” Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton said. “Twenty minutes later, they got called.”

Police came back and arrested Rhames, charging him with disorderly conduct. On the way to Waldo County Jail to be booked, Rhames “got upset,” Trafton said. He kicked at the rear passenger side window of a cruiser, damaging the frame.

The arresting deputy put him in ankle restraints and charged him with criminal mischief.
