BANGOR, Maine — An intoxicated local man who was visiting a female relative at the Bangor House on Friday night was charged after he became belligerent and pushed her, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

The 69-year-old victim called police twice. The first time Adam Laird, 31, was nowhere to be found but he showed up again at about 9:45 p.m. Friday and was charged with assault, the sergeant said.

“He was very drunk and acting crazy,” Edwards said.

At one point, Laird was verbally abusive and “he pushed her to get out of the apartment,” the sergeant said, referring to the victim.

Laird has been removed from the Bangor House before. Police said they were called to the retirement home in October 2011 and found Laird intoxicated. Police ended up charging him with misusing the 911 system after he allegedly made two nonemergency calls to city dispatchers after being warned he would be arrested if he continued to do so, Edwards said at the time.
