    Since the police knew this was a misunderstanding it is despicable that he was charged with a felony. The DA will throw this out and the police knew that…but this man will always have a felony arrest that shows up on employer background checks…who knows how many jobs he will not be able to obtain because of this.

    The Old Town PD is out-of-control and has no regard for the long-term consequences that good people face from sloppy, lazy police work.

      I agree. I could tell you a story, but it would be flagged.

      Really, do you know if he had anything else on his record? And lets not hold anyone accountable for being so drunk that he had no idea where he was! Boy I love your logic! Not saying he’s a hardened criminal but it’s about time people are held accountable for there actions!

      Is a mental hospital record better for getting work then jail?

    Felony burglary ? I thought you had to steal something to get that charge. I could see criminal trespassing.  Not like the Oldtown PD never saw a drunk before.  I think we should polygraph  every Oldtown police office and ask them if they ever lied in court. if they fail fire them . I know for a fact at least one did .

      What the hell does a polygraph have to do with this?

      • Bob

        My point is Old town cops lie in court.

    Wow…He’s a winner!

    Alcohol needs to be taxed $1.00 per bottle of beer $5.00 for hard booze. all bar drinks $1.00 including draft beer. This way it can pay for all the people in Jail because of booze. If someone proposed this the lobbyist would have their nikes on in 3 seconds.

    It appears Mr. Bowen, in the police mug shot with the article thinks something is very funny.  Or was this a police photo from a previous arrest?  He does not appear to be drunk or having a hangover at the time this photo was taken.  I doubt he would be smiling (if this was the photo taken on April 25th) if the home owner whose house Bowen was trying to get into slugged him with a baseball bat across his mouth! 

  • My pittbull would have greeted him at the door (or window) and then chewed him up!
