BANGOR, Maine — A Kenduskeag man who refused to stop rolling cigarettes was taken to jail early Wednesday after he was asked repeatedly to leave a Moosehead Boulevard residence, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

“He was fighting with someone in the house … over cigarettes” and police were called at around 12:15 a.m., the sergeant said.

Police asked Christopher Beayon, 20, to leave and he agreed to but asked to roll up a cigarette beforehand, Edwards said.

“He had one of those cigarette machines” and started rolling cigarettes, the sergeant said. After he had completed rolling a cigarette or two, the officers told him it was time to go but he just kept rolling up smokes.

“They gave him many chances to leave” and finally arrested him for criminal trespass and took him to Penobscot County Jail.

In the last year, Beayon, who recently resided in Hudson, has been convicted of burglary to a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

Beayon remained in jail on Wednesday night. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN) printed on March 29, 2017
