ROCKLAND, Maine — The former owner of the now defunct Turning Tide methadone clinic in Rockland will be serving another 40 days in jail after violating her probation on a prior drug charge.

Angel Fuller McMahan, 43, of Owls Head, was ordered Thursday, Feb. 16, in 6th District Court to spend 40 days of a previously suspended jail term for the probation violation.

Fuller McMahan was arrested Jan. 7 for operating under the influence. In October 2010, Fuller McMahan had been sentenced to 364 days in jail with all but 30 days suspended for cocaine possession. She had also been placed on probation for a year following the completion of that initial jail sentence.

She was the founder and owner of Turning Tide at the time of her arrest on the cocaine charge. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services closed Turning Tide during the summer of 2010 in the wake of the arrest of Fuller McMahan and a charge against a drug counselor for a drug offense.

Fuller McMahan also pleaded guilty Feb. 16 to the OUI charge and was fined $500 and had her motor vehicle license suspended for 90 days.
