BANGOR, Maine — Three allegedly intoxicated men who attended the Luke Bryan concert Saturday night at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion were removed from the site and arrested between 7 and 9 p.m., according to Bangor police.
Jason Bergeron, 27, of Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to submit to arrest.
Curtis Bowie, 23, of Westbrook was charged with criminal trespass and failure to submit to arrest.
Joseph Murphy, 20, of Brewer was charged with criminal trespass.
All three men were taken to the Penobscot County Jail and released after posting bail, Sgt. Bob Bishop said Sunday. They are scheduled to be arraigned in late October at the Penobscot Judicial Center.
“They all had a little too much beverage,” Bishop said of the men’s levels of intoxication.
Security workers at the concert asked Bangor police to assist them with an allegedly intoxicated male, whom they later learned was Bergeron, the sergeant said. When he saw the officer, Bergeron bolted but was caught after a brief chase.
Murphy was removed from the site for being allegedly intoxicated but was arrested after he sneaked back onto the grounds. Bishop said Sunday it was unclear how the Brewer man returned without being detected.
Police encountered Bowie when they responded to a report of a fight near the sound mixing stage.
“He chest bumped Sgt. Rob Angelo, so he was placed under arrest,” Bishop said.
Bishop described the Westbrook man as “very disruptive” and “difficult to get off the grounds.”
Bryan’s sold-out country western concert drew an estimated 16,000 people, Bishop said.
