Bangor man out on bail for OUI racks up 2nd charge

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor man who reportedly was out on bail for a recent arrest for driving under the influence was arrested on the same charge last week, Bangor police Sgt. Larry Weber said Wednesday night.

Scott D. Kennedy, 42, also is charged with driving with a suspended license, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and violating his bail conditions in connection with a series of incidents that happened on Oct. 3, Weber said, citing a police report.

Weber said that Bangor police arrested Kennedy after receiving a call about a visibly intoxicated patron of Miguel’s Mexican Restaurant on Hogan Road who was seen driving toward Interstate 95.

The license plate number and vehicle description provided to police by witnesses enabled officers to link Kennedy with a hit-and-run property damage crash that occurred earlier the same day, Weber said.

When a city police officer caught up with Kennedy at his home on Fern Street, he noted that the suspect vehicle had damage that appeared to be consistent with the earlier accident, Weber said.

When Kennedy opened his door in response to the police officer’s knocking, he reportedly exhibited signs of having consumed alcohol, including slurred speech, bloodshot and glassy eyes and the odor of alcohol coming from his mouth.

The arrest report indicated that Kennedy denied being at Miguel’s and denied having hit another vehicle, Weber said. He said that Kennedy also told police that no one else had been driving his car.
