OLD TOWN, Maine — An underage and intoxicated University of Maine student was arrested Saturday when he attempted to get into a downtown bar and argued with the bouncer and then took off running, Old Town police Sgt. Scott Casey said Monday.
Forest Gregory, 18, who lists UMaine’s Somerset Hall as his residence, was charged at around 12:25 a.m. with disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest and illegal possession of alcohol by a minor through consumption, the sergeant said.
“He just arrived in a cab and he was intoxicated and they didn’t let him in,” Casey said.
When police arrived, “he decided he was going to walk off, then decided to start running.”
Officer Ryan Fitch caught Gregory immediately and, after charging him, took him to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor. He later was released, Casey said.
Gregory also was one of three students charged with underage drinking last week at the University of Maine. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
