BANGOR, Maine — The ex-boyfriend of Amanda Jennison called police Sunday afternoon to report she was harassing him by phone and Bangor police Officer Doug Smith discovered that she was wanted on an outstanding warrant and arrested her, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

“He asked her to stop calling him and she kept calling,” the sergeant said of Jennison’s ex.

While Smith was at the alleged harassment victim’s house interviewing him around 3:50 p.m. Sunday, Jennison called and Smith answered the phone.

“She hung up on the officer,” Edwards said.

Smith went to Jennison’s home and arrested her for the outstanding warrant, issued from Portland for unpaid fines associated with a conviction for operating a motor vehicle after license suspension, and also gave her a harassment warning, the sergeant said.

She was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later was released at court Monday, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
