Police say a Hope man who was a former sergeant with the Camden Police Department was summoned for a bail violation after a Belfast officer found him sitting in the driver's seat of a running vehicle and heavily intoxicated.

Jason Hall, 42, of Hope was summoned for violating conditions of release Monday, Nov. 11, in connection with the alleged incident on Lower Congress Street in Belfast on the night of Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Belfast Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham said Belfast Sgt. John Gibbs found Hall in a state of intoxication that left Gibbs concerned for Hall's safety. For that reason, Cunningham said, Hall was transported to a local hospital to be treated.

"The car was running, he was in it, and he was really intoxicated," said Cunningham.

Cunningham said Hall was subject to bail conditions due to an operating under the influence charge he incurred after his encounter with the Waldoboro Police Department in August. According to statewide media reports, Hall was charged with the OUI offense Aug. 8.

Cunningham confirmed Hall had worked for the Camden Police Department, and previously published reports from The Republican Journal's sister newspaper, The Camden Herald, show Hall ran for a seat on the Hope Board of Selectmen in 2011. According to the website for the town of Hope, Hall remains on the board and his term expires next year.

Hall is scheduled to appear in court in Belfast Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014.
