BIDDEFORD, Maine — Former City Councilor Perry Aberle has been issued a criminal summons after police say he was found in possession of marijuana while passed out at a local park.

Biddeford Deputy Police Chief JoAnne Fisk said Wednesday that police responded to a complaint of a man passed out on a bench in Williams Court Park on Sept. 1.

The man, who was later identified as Aberle, 41, appeared to be intoxicated.

Aberle, who is out on bail, is to abstain from alcohol as part of his release conditions. Police also found a small amount of marijuana in Aberle’s possession, Fisk said.

Aberle was not arrested, but was charged with violating conditions of release and for possession of marijuana, and issued a criminal summons. He is set to appear in court on Oct. 26.

Aberle was arrested on June 24 after police say they responded to a call that he was threatening the caller’s boyfriend at a South Street home.

During his exchange with police, Aberle became disorderly and would not cooperate with officers, who were forced to take him to the ground, police said. He was arrested, charged with refusing to submit to arrest or detention and taken to York County Jail, where he posted $500 cash bail.

Aberle was elected to the Biddeford City Council in 1993 and, at age 18, was the youngest councilor elected. He unsuccessfully ran for the Ward 5 council seat last year, running on a platform to address poverty and drug abuse while continuing to advance downtown development.

Aberle also ran unsuccessfully for House District 12 as a Republican in 2014.
