Man charged after reporting to jail intoxicated, police say

ELLSWORTH — Police were called to the Hancock County Jail shortly after midnight on Jan. 19.

Michael R. Roy, 31, of Eddington, had arrived at the jail to begin serving a 20-day sentence.

Roy was found guilty in December on charges of driving to endanger and failing to stop for an officer, charges that stemmed from an incident last summer in Ellsworth.

Between being sentenced and starting his jail sentence, Roy was “out on bail and was not supposed to consume or possess alcohol, per his bail conditions,” according to police.

Police said Roy was “found to be extremely intoxicated” upon his arrival at the jail, however. As a result, he was arrested and charged with violation of conditional release.
