The Maine Warden Service issued the following statement
The Maine Warden Service has placed Game Warden Jeremy Judd, age 41 of Mechanic Falls, on administrative leave after Judd was charged with assault on Thursday night while off-duty and attending a concert in Bangor.
As with any criminal charge involving a Maine law enforcement officer, the charge was reported to the Maine Attorney General’s office.
“We take any allegations of this type of behavior very seriously,” said Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Commissioner Judy Camuso, “Warden Judd is on administrative leave pending completion of an investigation into the charge.”
While the Bangor Police Department will conduct an investigation into the assault charge, there will be a separate personnel investigation conducted by Laurel Shippee, the director of investigations at state Office of Employee Relations.
