BANGOR, Maine — A local teenager, who was arrested two months ago for smashing the windshield of a police cruiser, was unruly at Eastern Maine Medical Center on Monday morning and arrested again, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Alyssa Savage, 18, of Bangor reportedly kicked a hospital security guard in the leg and “she also did some damage to the room” she was in, the sergeant said.

She was asked to step outside and the responding officer reports he wanted to give her a summons to court and send her on her way, but the teenager refused.

“She said basically that she wanted to go to jail,” Edwards said. After the officer said he was going to give her a ticket, “she said she’d smash the cruiser window out” if she wasn’t taken to the county jail.

Savage was arrested for criminal mischief, assault and failure to submit and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

She was arrested in October after she was seen by Bangor police Officer Joe Baillargeon smashing the windshield of a police cruiser parked at the station, Edwards said at the time.

Savage was sentenced the same week she was arrested to 15 days in jail for the criminal mischief, according to October court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.

She remained in jail on Tuesday evening, a jail official said.
