BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor man is behind bars, charged with criminal mischief after officials say they found him breaking a window at the central fire station in Bangor early Friday morning.

According to police, when they arrived around 1 a.m. at the station on 289 Main Street, David Bileau was punching out one of the fire station’s garage door windows. He also began cursing at the officer and a firefighter who’d stepped outside to help. 

Police say Bileau damaged a total of six garage door windows, and alcohol was a factor in this crime.
