BANGOR, Maine — Officer Dick Polk went to the Riverview Motel twice on Saturday morning and the second time he arrested an intoxicated woman who refused to get out of the middle of State Street, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said.
Tammy Cyr-Barber, 32, who lists the motel as her address, and a male were both given disorderly conduct warnings at around 2:20 a.m. after police responded to a noise complaint.
Polk returned again at about 4:10 a.m. when another person called police reporting loud arguing coming from Cyr-Barber’s room. Polk could hear two people yelling at each other when he arrived and, just as he’s about to knock on the door, the man opens it and tells the officer he’s leaving to go downtown.
Cyr-Barber also exited the room, saying she wanted to go for a walk, and Polk was able to convince her go back inside.
“About five minutes later, she returned outside” apparently to pursue the man, Edwards said. “She was on her cellphone and [walking] in the roadway.”
When she “staggered out into the inbound lane of State Street, the officer used his PA system” to warn her to get out of the roadway, the sergeant said.
“She told the officer to ‘Go [expletive] himself’ and she was arrested for obstructing a public way and disorderly conduct,” Edwards said.
Cyr-Barber was previously arrested for smashing the windshield and back window of her boyfriend ’ s car in February 2012, when she lived on Walter Street, and was charged with criminal mischief and domestic violence assault, according to a Bangor Daily News story about her arrest.
She was taken to Penobscot County Jail early Saturday and was released on bail later in the day, a jail official said Saturday afternoon.
