BANGOR, Maine — A local transient who has been told he is not allowed at the Freese’s Assisted Living facility in downtown Bangor was found Thursday night “passed out in the front doorway” there, police Lt. Steve Hunt said Friday.

David Bryant, 54, who was issued a prior criminal trespass warning, was arrested about 8 p.m. for criminal trespass when police found him on the senior living facility’s property, the lieutenant said.

Bryant also was arrested last summer after he was found passed out behind a trash receptacle on State Street, according to BDN archives.

He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and remained there Friday morning, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
