BANGOR, Maine — A Husson University student was arrested after a resident assistant and a Bangor police officer showed up in his dorm room and determined that three underage people there had been drinking.

Samuel Carey, 23, is charged with allowing minors to consume liquor and furnishing liquor to minors in connection with the gathering early Saturday morning in Carlisle Hall, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Carey, who was taken to Penobscot County Jail after his arrest, since has been released on bail, Edwards said.

Two underage males and one underage female each were summoned for illegal possession of alcohol by a minor by consumption, Edwards said.

The gathering in Carey’s dorm room was reported to city police by campus security about 1 a.m., Edwards said. When Officer Mike Brennan, the department’s liaison to Husson, arrived, he was directed to Carey’s room, where several beer cans were found.

At least one of the minors admitted to drinking, Edwards said, adding that police also conducted simple field sobriety tests indicating the consumption of an intoxicant.
