FARMINGTON — Authorities say a local man who fell 40 feet from the roof of a University of Maine at Farmington building will face charges as soon as he's released from the hospital.
Police say two men climbed onto the roof of a university gym at about 2 a.m. Tuesday.
The Sun Journal reports that officers on patrol spotted them and ordered them down.
Twenty-one-year-old Devon Pease of Farmington tried to escape by climbing down, but fell 40 feet to the pavement and sustained serious injuries.
Twenty-five-year-old Joshua Farthing of Panama City, Fla., was issued a summons for criminal trespass and released after a fire department ladder truck helped him down.
Neither man was a student at the school. Police did not say what they were doing on the roof.
