BANGOR, Maine — A Pleasant Point woman, who is barred by court order from consuming alcohol or breaking the law, was arrested last week after she reportedly was drinking, kicked in a hotel room door and then took off with her young child, police say.

Sheena Sockabasin, 27, was caught about 3 a.m. May 28 shortly after leaving Motel 6 on outer Hammond Street, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday. Hotel staff said she kicked in a door and then left, the sergeant said.

“She was located with her child in the area” of a nearby motel, the sergeant said. “Her 4-year-old son didn’t have any shoes on and it was raining. He wasn’t dressed for the weather.”

Sockabasin was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, criminal mischief for kicking in the hotel room door, and two counts of violating her bail conditions, for drinking and committing a crime, Edwards said.

She was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later released. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
