BANGOR, Maine — A local man who wouldn’t leave Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway despite multiple warnings by police wound up in jail Tuesday morning, according to police.
Josh Neptune, 23, and another man had been allegedly acting in a disorderly fashion in the hotel lobby around 11 a.m. Tuesday, prompting security to call police, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
When Officers David Olmstead and Tim Wheelden arrived, Neptune and the other man, who was not charged, were walking away from the scene, but security quickly pointed them out, Edwards said.
When Neptune was approached, he placed his hand on Wheelden’s shoulder in attempt to get the officer’s attention, upon which Olmstead warned him not to touch the officer, Edwards said.
Neptune wasn’t happy, but was warned to quiet down and wait for police to finish questioning the other man. He was given a warning for disorderly conduct, the sergeant said.
Even though security didn’t want to press charges and gave both men a 1-year trespass warning, Neptune would not calm down. Police had no choice but to arrest him for disorderly conduct, Edwards said.
Neptune was brought to Penobscot County Jail and later released on bail.
