Argument at Bangor restaurant leads to ex-boyfriend’s arrest

By Andrew Neff, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — An argument between a man and his former girlfriend at a Bangor restaurant resulted in his arrest after Bangor police officers called to the scene discovered he had violated his bail conditions.

Bangor police received a complaint call from someone at My Fork restaurant on the Odlin Road around 7 p.m. Sunday about a man and a woman involved in a loud argument that was bothering staff and customers.

According to the police report, officers Jermaine Walker and Chris Blanchard, along with Lt. Tim Reid, responded to the call to find a man engaged in a verbal altercation with a woman later determined to be his ex-girlfriend.

According to the report, Kenneth Ladd, 47, of Orrington was arguing with the woman and the argument became very loud, bothering other diners. After interviewing Ladd and the woman, they discovered that he had apparently physically assaulted her prior to coming into the restaurant. They also determined that Ladd had been drinking, which is a violation of conditions of his release on bail.

After further questioning, the officers discovered that the assault actually may have occurred a week earlier in Orrington, where the woman also lives. Ladd and the woman previously lived together, but now have separate addresses.

Ladd was taken into custody on the bail violation and taken to Penobscot County Jail in Bangor. He was charged with domestic violence assault, domestic violence trespass, disorderly conduct and violation of a protection order.

According to an officer at the jail, Ladd remained in jail, made a Monday court appearance, and returned to jail to await an April 9 court date. Ladd is being held on $10,000 cash bail, which he had yet to post as of late Monday night.
