BANGOR, Maine — Four transients who were fighting at the Hope House on Monday evening were asked to leave and all eventually were arrested for trespassing, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Police first went to the Hope House, a shelter for people struggling with drugs and alcohol, around 6 p.m. and found Jason Brown, 38, Maria Pounds, 39, Brian Brewer, 51, and Cassandra MacDonald, 41, fighting and being disorderly, the sergeant said.

All were asked to leave and given criminal trespass warnings. Brown refused and was arrested, Edwards said.

Police were called back to the Hope House around 11:15 p.m. and found Pounds, Brewer and MacDonald and arrested all three for trespassing, the sergeant said.

All four transients were taken to the Penobscot County Jail and remained behind bars on Tuesday, a jail official said. printed on April 27, 2017
