While processing, Riendeau continued to complain of chest pain and was ransported to Backus Hospital. Riendeau was subsequently released on a $10,000 bond and an additional no contact protective order was put into place protecting his girlfriend. 

Approximately 5 hours later around 4:00 A.M., officers say they received a 9-1-1 call from a woman who stated that Riendeau had allegedly returned to the residence and had again entered the residence through a window.

The girlfriend was the victim of the protective order from the previous arrest.  

Riendeau arrested for the same charges of criminal trespass and violating a protective order for the second time. Riendeau was held on a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
