BANGOR, Maine — A transient and another man who lists the Hope House as his address were arrested Saturday at the shelter for people struggling with drugs and alcohol, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

About 4:50 p.m., “there were three or four people warned about yelling and threatening,” and one, Levi Lucas, 26, disregarded the warning, the sergeant said.

“Levi got out of control and was arrested” for disorderly conduct, Edwards said.

Lucas is listed as a transient. Police returned to the shelter just after 7 p.m. and arrested a second man, Sander Svensson, 22, who had been warned earlier for “swearing and being offensive,” the sergeant said.

Svensson, who lists the Hope House as his residence, fought with Officer Mike Brennan and was charged with refusing to submit to arrest as well as disorderly conduct. Both Lucas and Svensson were taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later were released, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
