Presque Isle Man Pleads Guilty to Felony Gun Charges
A Presque Isle man who was arrested last spring outside a Main Street pub has pleaded guilty to felony gun charges in U.S. District Court in Bangor.
According to court records, 33-year-old Wayne Boulier Jr. admitted Monday to charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Presque Isle Police arrested Boulier outside Bou's Brew Pub in the early hours of Sunday, April 7, 2013. Boulier reportedly caused a disruption at the bar and was escorted to the door by a bouncer. As he fell onto the sidewalk, he pulled out a loaded .40 caliber pistol, according to prosecutors.
A bar patron and a second bouncer managed to get the gun away from Boulier and subdued him until police arrived. Boulier has been held without bail since his arrest.
Due to his lengthy criminal history, Boulier faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison. Court documents listed a dozen felony convictions in Maine and Connecticut over the past 14 years, including burglary and assault.
A sentencing date has not been set.
