A Freeport man arrested Monday for allegedly throwing produce at the Abercrombie & Fitch outlet on Main Street was charged Tuesday with the same crime.

James M. Roux Jr., 27, was charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass and violating conditions of his Monday release.

Roux was arrested Monday morning after police allegedly found him throwing produce outside the store at 55 Main St. Roux told police he was protesting the store’s “exploitation” of young models, Freeport Police Chief Gerald Schofield said Monday.

Tuesday, police allegedly found him outside the store again, and a witness reported he had thrown a smashed pumpkin on the store’s front steps. Police allegedly found other produce in his car. Schofield said Roux admitted to throwing the pumpkin.

“He was angry at Abercrombie & Fitch because (he said) it makes kids feel bad about their bodies,” Schofield said.

Roux was taken to Cumberland County Jail. He is to appear in West Bath District Court Nov. 19.
