BOCA RATON, FL ( — A 49-year-old Boynton Beach man was arrested after police say he repeatedly interrupted an Alcoholic's Anonymous meeting in Sandalfoot Plaza to offer members beer.

Michael Paul Belanger of Renaissance Commons Boulevard in Boynton allegedly attended the Pines Club AA meeting with a beer. He was ordered to leave but wouldn't, apparently offering to share his beer with other people at the meeting.

There were no reported takers.

Police arrived at the scene and again ordered Belanger to leave. This time, according to police, he did — but returned several minutes later to stand in front of the “Pines Club” where the meeting was taking place.

He was taken into custody and transported to the Palm Beach County Jail where he was booked on a trespass charge. He was later released on his own recognizance.
