Too much green beer?

BANGOR Police were busy on St. Patrick's Day well into the wee hours of Monday morning. Here's a round-up of six people who ended up on the wrong side of the green holiday.

Around 1:19 a.m. on March 17, Officer Derek Laflin stopped a vehicle for poor operation on Main Street near Interstate 395. The driver, Lance Kramer, 25, was arrested and charged with operating under the influence.

At 2:20 p.m., Officers Jim Dearing and Tim Cotton were called to the parking lot of Geaghan's Restaurant for the report of a man striking parked cars with his pickup while attempting to leave a tight parking spot. The officers spoke to Kyle O'Connell, 22, of Brewer, whom police said was belligerent and uncooperative. He was ultimately arrested and charged with operating under the influence and obstructing government administration.

Around 9:08 p.m., Officer Kevin Haefele was called to a three-car hit and run that injured some of the parties involved. One victim of the crash told police that she was pregnant and didn't feel well. She later declined an ambulance and told police she was all set, but Sgt. Paul Edwards said that police did not know if she followed up with any medical personnel.

After speaking with other witnesses, police located the vehicle at an Ohio Street residence and a warrant was issued for the house.
