BANGOR, Maine — A city woman, who was arrested last week for disorderly conduct at her apartment building, was arrested again Tuesday for violating her bail conditions, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Wednesday.
Bangor police went to 145 Union St. at around 8:45 p.m. Feb. 10 to deal with a 52-year-old woman who was shut up alone in her apartment, screaming and yelling incomprehensible statements with her television turned up loudly, he said.
“They could hear a woman yelling” from inside the apartment and her TV when they arrived, Edwards said.
Police knocked on the door, and the woman, later identified as Gail Judd, “threatened she’d jump out the window,” if they entered, the sergeant said.
Officer Joe Page, who was accompanied by Officers Taylor Bagley, Jamie Fanning and Rob Angelo, spoke to Judd through the door for more than 20 minutes.
“He was trying to get her calmed down but could not do it,” Edwards said.
Police then warned Judd through the door that she would be arrested for disorderly conduct if she didn’t knock off the noise.
“They stayed around for 15 minutes or so and when they left they were called back [soon after] for a fire call,” Edwards said.
The fire at the apartment building was set and police are investigating if there is any connection between the arson and the disorderly conduct incident, he said, adding the fire was not in Judd’s apartment.
“The whole case is still under investigation,” Edwards said.
The building, which has more than 17 rental units, was evacuated for the minor fire.
Detective Brent Beaulieu and Bagley caught up with Judd on Walter Street about two hours later, at 12:30 a.m. Feb. 11, and charged her with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
Edwards said he was not sure what the basis for the criminal trespass charge was.
Judd was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released on bail. She was arrested again for violating her bail conditions at around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday when she allegedly caused a disturbance at the Rite-Aid on Third Street, he said.
She spent the night in jail but was released at court on Wednesday afternoon, a jail official said.
