BANGOR, Maine — A 32-year old transient wound up going to jail early Tuesday after ignoring multiple warnings by police to quiet down.

Officers had originally given Samantha Bell a warning for disorderly conduct after she seemed ready to calm down, according to Public Relations Officer Jason McAmbley.

Police had been sent to French Street around 1:30 a.m. when a resident called complaining about the noise Bell was making, McAmbley said. The police report did not indicate whether she was intoxicated.

After receiving her warning, Bell started to walk away, but not before mouthing off to police one last time.

“She began to express her feelings about the officer using vulgar expletives,” McAmbley said.

Police quickly arrested Bell and charged her with disorderly conduct, McAmbley said. She remained at Penobscot County Jail Tuesday.
