PORTLAND, Maine — A late-night pizza run has landed a Portland man in jail.

Steven Ricci, 48, who was released from the Cumberland County Jail last week after serving a sentence for indecent conduct, went back behind bars Friday after he violated his dusk-to-dawn probation order, according to Portland police Lt. Gary Rogers.

“Apparently he went out for a pizza” past his curfew, Rogers said.

Ricci was behind bars after being convicted of masturbating in front of a woman on the Fore River trail last summer. He has cerebral palsy, according to Rogers.

Rogers said an off-duty jail deputy spotted Ricci walking along Brighton Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Friday and contacted police.

Ricci, who was carrying a Little Caesers pizza, was arrested. Rogers said Ricci was walking back to the hotel where he had been staying, as his home is uninhabitable.
