BANGOR, Maine — A woman who was a passenger in a car stopped early Thursday on suspicion of having a drunken driver was later arrested for failing to listen to police, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday.

Several police officers responded to the Circle K on Broadway at about 12:05 a.m. While the driver of the car was undergoing a field sobriety test, one of the man’s passengers exited the vehicle even though police told her to stay in the car, the sergeant said.

Rachel King, 35, of Bangor went into the store, and when she was returning to the vehicle, she again was told to stop, Edwards said.

“They told her to stay put, [but] she started walking away,” the sergeant said.

Because she refused to cooperate, King was arrested and charged with refusing to submit to detention. She was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later was released, Edwards said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
