Drunken teen arrested for repeatedly calling 911


A 17-year-old girl who reportedly was drinking was arrested late Monday after failing to heed warnings to stop calling 911, Bangor police Lt. Steve Hunt said Tuesday.

“A girl kept calling 911 at the state police barracks,” Hunt said. “A police officer went [to her home] and gave her a summons for misuse of E-911.”

Within minutes of police leaving her Bangor home, the teen called 911 two more times, forcing them to return and arrest her. Officers confiscated her cell phone and charged her with disorderly conduct and possession of alcohol by a minor. She was taken to the Bangor police station and later was released to her parents, Hunt said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
