DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — A local man is behind bars after a 15-year-old girl was found unresponsive from drinking too much alcohol, according to Dover-Foxcroft police.
At 9:45 p.m. on Nov. 29, a Dover-Foxcroft police officer had reason to believe somebody might be in danger inside a West Main Street home. Upstairs in the home, he found the intoxicated 15-year-old girl unresponsive, but breathing, Lt. Scott Arno said on Tuesday. An ambulance was called and the girl was taken to Mayo Regional Hospital. She was treated and then released the next day.
Dover-Foxcroft police executed a search warrant at the West Main Street residence shortly after noon Monday. Graham A. Long, 44, was the lone person in the residence and he was arrested.
Long was charged with three Class D misdemeanor offenses: furnishing liquor to a minor, allowing a minor to possess or consume liquor and endangering the welfare of a child.
More arrests are possible, Arno said.
Long is not related to the girl, said Chief Dennis Dyer.
Long has been convicted of similar offenses in the past, according to Arno.
On June 17, 2011, Long was arrested after a search warrant was executed at his residence. He later was convicted of allowing minors to possess or consume liquor and unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs. He was sentenced to 60 days in a jail and fined $1,000.
Long remained in Piscataquis County Jail in Dover-Foxcroft on Tuesday. Bail is set at $500.
