Intoxicated Bangor man arrested at police station

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A 51-year-old local man was arrested by city police after showing up at the Bangor Police Department on Wednesday afternoon and reportedly causing a ruckus.

David Bakeman was intoxicated, loud and belligerent when he arrived at the police station’s reception desk about 2:30 p.m., Bangor police Sgt. Bob Bishop said Thursday, citing a police report.

Bishop said the report did not indicate the nature of the business that brought Bakeman to the station.

Bakeman was asked to leave and when he did not, he was arrested on a criminal trespass charge and taken to Penobscot County Jail. He since has been released on bail.

Wednesday’s arrest was not Bakeman’s first for criminal trespass. Last September, he was given a one-day jail sentence for criminal trespass. The month before, he was fined $150 for criminal trespass and $150 for disorderly conduct.

In 2010, he was sentenced to 24 hours in jail for violating a protection from harassment order and fined $150 for disorderly conduct.
