Disorderly Diamonds customer held by staff, removed by police

By Andrew Neff, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Bangor police officers arrested and removed a man who was being violent and unruly at Diamonds Gentleman’s Club on Harlow Street early Thursday afternoon.

“We got a call from the club that a violent and unruly patron was being restrained by staff members,” said Bangor police Sgt. Bob Bishop.

Officer Paul Colley responded to the 2 p.m. call and found a number of employees were holding Ryan Sawyer, 24, of Bangor down on the floor. Sawyer was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

“Apparently he smashed a drinking glass into some sheetrock before being restrained,” Bishop said. “Our officers have dealt with him before. He was intoxicated and under influence of something.

“He was handcuffed and put in back of a car in a caged-in seat, and he continued to fight and kick,” Bishop said, reading from a police report. “He also fought with jail staff and was put in a seclusion room, where he continued to be unruly.”

Sawyer was being held at Penobscot County Jail Thursday evening on charges of disorderly conduct, violation of bail conditions and criminal mischief. He is expected to make a Penobscot Judicial Center court appearance on Friday.

Bishop said Sawyer was out on bail after a previous arrest for criminal mischief at a store in Bangor. He has been banned for one year from Diamonds.
