Deep pockets

ORONO An Orono man was arrested for reportedly violating his bail when police found him walking with people and allegedly concealing a couple of beers in his back pocket.

On June 22, around 12:09 a.m., Officer Peter Wentworth was on patrol when he saw a group of people walking down the street, one carrying a box of beer and another carrying a silver can. Wentworth saw a man, later identified as Casey Covall, 23, of Orono, hide something in his back pocket. Wentworth asked him what it was and Covall handed him an unopened can of beer. Wentworth asked him what he actually had hidden, and Covall then handed over the open can of beer.

A records check revealed that Covall was out on bail and had restrictions not to possess or consume alcohol. He was placed under arrest and taken to Penobscot County Jail, where he was charged with violation of conditions of release.

Bad company

OLD TOWN A Bangor woman was arrested for reportedly violating her bail.

On June 16, around 6:55 p.m., Officers Josh Loring and Cody Haverly-Johndro responded to a wanted-out call on Center Street. When officers arrived, they spoke to the man who lived at the apartment and he explained that Cassandra MacDonald, 43, of Bangor, was in his apartment and he wanted her to leave. The man told police that she had been drinking and that she had become agitated with him and had broken his cell phone.

Officers spoke to MacDonald and determined she had been drinking. They ran her name through dispatch and learned she was out on bail with conditions not to use or possess alcohol.

She was placed under arrest and escorted to Penobscot County Jail and charged with violation of conditions of release and criminal mischief for breaking the phone.

OUI safety checkpoint snags two

OLD TOWN The Old Town Police Department conducted a safety checkpoint to look for impaired drivers on June 20 and 21.

At approximately 10 p.m. on June 20, Officer Joshua Tilton saw a red pickup truck travelling through the checkpoint. The driver was Jonathan Smith, 21, of Orono, who appeared intoxicated and performed poorly during the field sobriety tests. Police also noted several empty containers in the vehicle.

He was placed under arrest and taken back to the station for an Intoxilyzer test which showed him to be over the legal limit. He was then taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with operating under the influence.

Shortly after 1 a.m. on June 21, Officer Justin Angelo saw a white utility vehicle approaching at an unsafe speed. Thinking it would not stop in time, he called out a warning to other officers and yelled for the vehicle to stop, which it did. He approached the vehicle and explained the checkpoint to the occupants, including the driver, Erin Padham, 28, of Hermon. He noted that she seemed intoxicated and asked for her to pull off to the side, she complied and hit the curb in the process and continued to drive down the curb until the officer shouted for her to stop.

He had Padham exit the vehicle and conducted field sobriety exercises, after which he determined she was possibly impaired. He took her back to the station for an Intoxilyzer and found her to be over the legal limit. She was also taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Captain Kyle Smart said that an estimated 800 vehicles passed through the checkpoint.

Arrested woman kicks officers, gets extra charges

ORONO A 911 hang-up call lead to arrest and charges for an Orono woman, who reportedly didn't go gently into the night.

On June 21, around 1:03 a.m., police were called to a residence on Tamarac Ridge for a 911 hang-up call. Officers Sarah Exley, Chase Haass and Wilfred King arrived at the residence and could hear a man and woman arguing inside the residence. Officers knocked on the door and a man answered. When they asked who else was in the residence, he said he was alone. Officers pointed out that they heard a female voice in the residence; the man told them she had left out the back door.

Haass, who had gone around the back, located the woman, later identified as Hannah McMann, 25, of Orono, who was reportedly hiding in children's playground equipment. She attempted to flee, and Haass called for assistance as he detained her on the ground.

They ran a records check on McCann and learned she had bail conditions that included having no contact with the man inside and also not to possess or consume alcohol. When she was informed she was under arrest, she began to kick at officers, according to police. She landed several kicks on Officer Exley before being placed into the cruiser.

She was taken to Penobscot County Jail, where she was charged with violation of conditions of release, refusing to submit to arrest and assault on a police officer.
