BANGOR, Maine — A fight at the Hope House on Tuesday night resulted in a wanted local man being charged with assault and arrested on two outstanding warrants, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

Jeremy Bowen, 22, and a 20-year-old transient man got into a pushing and then wrestling fight on the ground just after 8 p.m. at the shelter, which is for people struggling with drugs and alcohol, the sergeant said.

When police arrived “they arrested [Bowen] on the warrants and summoned him for the assault,” Edwards said.

Bowen, who has a former Dedham address, was convicted of assault in January and ordered to pay a $300 fine, pay $360 in restitution and spend 48 hours in jail, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. He also has a conviction for theft by unauthorized taking or transfer from August 2011, the BDN listings state.
