Presque Isle man accused of bringing gun into bar among those indicted in Aroostook

By Jen Lynds, BDN Staff

CARIBOU, Maine — A Presque Isle man who allegedly brought a gun into a downtown brew pub in Presque Isle in April has been indicted on several charges by the Aroostook County grand jury.

District Attorney Todd Collins said late last week that the grand jury this month handed down 50 indictments against more than 40 individuals.

Among them was Wayne Boulier, 32, who was indicted on charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, possession of a firearm in a liquor establishment, reckless conduct, two counts of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and violation of conditions of release stemming from the April 7 incident at Bou’s Brew Pub on Main Street.

Presque Isle police officers and Maine State Police troopers responded just after midnight that Sunday and found Boulier in the pub. The pub’s staff reportedly took a loaded firearm from Boulier before police arrived. In past years, Boulier has been charged with a number of crimes, including in 2000, when he held off police with a rifle for about five hours at his parents’ home before surrendering. He was charged two years later with escaping from an Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department transport car and was captured about an hour later at an apartment less than a mile away in Mars Hill.

Last November, he was charged with operating after suspension, violation of conditions of release, driving to endanger and criminal mischief after he crashed his vehicle in Merrill and then left the scene. Trooper Chad Fuller was called to the scene and conducted a track with his K-9 tracking dog, Glenni, and found Boulier within an hour a short distance from the crash
