Orono police officer ‘no longer employed’ after OUI charge, chief says

By Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN Staff

ORONO, Maine — An officer who was charged with drunken driving on Friday in Hancock County is no longer on the job, Orono Police Chief Gary Duquette said Thursday.

“He’s no longer employed by this agency,” Duquette said of Josh Gunn, 30, who was hired in November and formerly worked as an officer in Hampden.

Duquette declined to say whether Gunn resigned or was fired, saying it is a personnel matter.

A Hancock County sheriff’s deputy stopped Gunn late Friday night and he was brought into the Hancock County Jail at about 9:55 p.m., and charged with operating under the influence of intoxicants, a jail official said.

“He bailed out that same night,” another jail official said.
