A woman who racked up a $60 tab at the Lobster Trap in Winslow Wednesday and left the restaurant without paying will head to court in August, according to police.

Amy Jean Hudson

Amy Jean Hudson, 35, was out on bail conditions for theft and indecent conduct when she dined at the 21 Bay St. eatery and walked out before 5:50 p.m. Wednesday, “highly intoxicated,” police Chief Shawn O’Leary said Thursday.

A restaurant employee called police. Winslow police Detective Brad Hubert, who was taking a person to jail, saw Hudson on Bay Street seven minutes later near the Ticonic Bridge and stopped her, according to O’Leary.

Hudson told Hubert, who was familiar with her, that she was coming into Winslow from Waterville, but Hubert knew that was not the case, he said.

Hubert arrested Hudson and charged her with theft of services and four counts of violating conditions of release, and she was taken to Kennebec County Jail in Augusta, O’Leary said.

As conditions of her bail, Hudson was not to have alcohol or engage in further criminal conduct, according to O’Leary.

A jail spokesman said just after 11:30 a.m. Thursday that Hudson was still at the jail and there was no bail for her.

She is scheduled to appear August 13 in Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta, according to O’Leary.
