Officer Brock Saves a Man, Then Officer Polk Arrests Him
From our friends at the Bangor Police Department
On July 24, 2013 at about 525PM, Officer Jeremy Brock responded to the parking lot of Mansfield Stadium to the report of a man that was not breathing and appeared to have just died. Bangor Fire responded as well and found Officer Brock to be performing CPR on the man on the ground. Officer Brock reported that when he arrived at the car, a female companion of the victim told him that he had just injected heroin about ten minutes prior, became ill, and pulled into the parking lot as he was not feeling well, and collapsed. The man, Michael Kashey, 34 of Dedham, was fully revived by Bangor Fire Paramedics and transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Emergency Room, where he was stabilized.
At about 820PM, Officer Richard Polk responded to the Emergency Room as Mr. Kashey was being released back into the custody of Bangor Police and found he was carrying a bottle of pills, Butalbital, which were not prescribed to him, and a switchblade knife that was alleged to be illegal. He was transported to the Penobscot County Jail where he remains.
Michael Kashey was charged with Felony Possession of Heroin, Misdemeanor Trafficking in Dangerous Knives, Unlawful Trafficking of Schedule Drugs, and 5 Warrants.
