Man charged in pot case

BAR HARBOR — A Bar Harbor man was charged with a felony level drug crime April 5 as the result of Officer Tim Bland’s investigation into an alleged assault.

Bland determined that no assault had occurred but did summons Christopher Mitchell, 43, on a charge of Class C aggravated furnishing of a scheduled drug. According to police, Mitchell is alleged to have been supplying someone under the age of 18 with marijuana.

An intoxicated man who reportedly was trying late Friday to start fights with random individuals in the parking lot behind the police station apparently was so drunk he forgot where he lived.

Police didn’t charge the man for his disorderly behavior but did give him a ride home, or more accurately, to where he used to live. The next day a tenant in the same building called police to say the man, who no longer lives at the residence, had been pounding on the door to get in. He presumably sobered up enough to remember his error and walked to his new home.

Rebecca Gray, 39, of Eastbrook was summonsed Monday on a charge of operating after suspension.
