BANGOR, Maine — A former Princeton man who was intoxicated and standing in the middle of Union Street screaming obscenities late Tuesday was given a warning to get out of the street, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday.

“Twenty minutes later he was back in the street” near Rite Aid and was arrested, the sergeant said.

Stephen Lacoote, 32, who now lives in Bangor, was charged just before 9 p.m. with disorderly conduct and obstructing a public way.

He had a Princeton address last month when he was convicted of carrying concealed weapon and criminal trespass and sentenced to 48 hours in the Penobscot County Jail, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

In the last two years, Lacoote has been convicted of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and violating condition of release.

Lacoote was taken to jail Tuesday night and was released at court on Wednesday, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
