Bangor man arrested on probation violation after drunken bike ride

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor man was arrested for violating one of the terms of his probation Sunday night after police were called to check on his well-being.

Robert Kennedy, 35, had been riding his bicycle shortly before 10 p.m. when he fell off it at the intersection of Cedar and Hammond streets, Bangor police Sgt. Bob Bishop said Monday.

When Bangor police Officer Kyle Pelky arrived at the scene, he determined that Kennedy was on probation and that as a condition of his release, Kennedy was prohibited from consuming alcohol.

In March of this year, Kennedy was sentenced to 18 months in prison, all but 90 days suspended, followed by one year of probation, and ordered to pay $439.90 in restitution for a burglary conviction.

Also at that time, he was sentenced to 15 days in jail for each of his convictions for theft, criminal trespass and violating the conditions of his release, according to a court listing in the Bangor Daily News archives.
