BANGOR, Maine — An employee at Tim Hortons coffee shop on Main Street called police at around 9:15 a.m. Tuesday to report “a male in the bathroom passed out,” Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

Police found William G. Jennison Jr., 58, who is listed as a Bangor-area transient, in the bathroom and arrested him for violating his bail conditions, which bar him from drinking alcohol, the sergeant said.

Jennison also was arrested and charged earlier this month after employees at Hollywood Slots Hotel & Raceway reported he was passed out at their facility at around 8 p.m. Feb. 3, Edwards said.

They reported an “intoxicated male sleeping in the main lobby,” the sergeant said. “When the cops got there, he ran to a bathroom and locked himself in” and was screaming and causing a disturbance.

He was charged with disorderly conduct for the Feb. 3 incident, Edwards said.

Jennison has convictions for criminal trespassing and for violating his conditions of release, as well as seven convictions for theft by unauthorized taking in the last five years, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

Bangor took Jennison to Penobscot County Jail on Tuesday and he remained there on Wednesday morning, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
