BANGOR, Maine — Police arrested a local man after dealing with him more than once Wednesday night, Bangor police Officer Jason McAmbley said Thursday.

Kristopher Pinkham, 24, had been given a criminal trespassing warning earlier in the evening and told not to return to 28 First St. because he was being disruptive. At about 11:20 p.m., police were called to 48 First St., where a female relative of Pinkham told police he had pushed another female relative and was asked to leave, McAmbley said.

“She said to get out and he said, ‘no,’” the officer said.

Pinkham left after police were called, so responding officers went back to 28 First St. to look for him.

“When he opened the door, he was arrested,” said McAmbley, a community relations officer.

Pinkham was charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespassing and violating his bail conditions. He was convicted of criminal trespassing in 2012 and in March was ordered to pay a $250 fine, according to prior court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

Pinkham was taken to Penobscot County Jail after his arrest and remained there on Thursday, McAmbley said.
