Heroic bystander stops vicious assault

ORONO A man who witnessed four men assaulting a prone person with a baseball bat intervened and stopped the beating, according to police.

On March 17, around 11:14 p.m., Officer Jason Zalva was informed that there was a fight happening on in front of Dick's Barber Shop on Mill Street and that one man had been assaulted by four others, one of whom was wielding a baseball bat. The men had fled before police arrived due to a bystander coming to the defense of the victim.

According to police, when the bystander saw the four men attacking the victim, he ordered the man holding the baseball bat to stop. When it appeared that the man was going to attempt to strike the prone victim, the unidentified bystander grabbed the man with the bat and pulled him away. When another man also acted aggressively towards him, he pulled that man off the victim as well. The other two then dispersed.

Teen facing gun charges

EDDINGTON - A Bangor teen was arrested last week and is facing charges related to being in possession of a stolen firearm.

On Feb. 22, Dep. Steve Saucier was working a detail in Eddington when he saw a vehicle that matched a license plate from an incident that had been called into the Bangor Police Department. In the initial call, a firearm had been mentioned.

Saucier stopped the vehicle at the Eddington Clifton line, and performed a consent search. The passenger, a 17-year-old juvenile from Bangor was found to have three active warrants for arrest. The deputy located a .44 magnum revolver as well as one spent .44 shell cashing under the front passenger seat. The gun was determined to be stolen.

The Bangor youth was arrested on the warrants and also charged with possession of stolen property and carrying a prohibited firearm.

Daddy-daughter charges

HOWLAND - A father and daughter are both facing charges stemming from the same incident.

On Feb. 25, Dep. Peter Stone was on patrol when he recognized Whiltley Hussey, 20, of Passadumkeag, driving. Knowing her license was suspended, he stopped the car. When asked if she had received her license back, she replied that she had not. Stone confirmed that her license was still under suspension and placed her under arrest.

While processing Whitley, her father, Hugh Hussey, 58, also of Passadumkeag, walked up to the scene, hoping to prevent the vehicle from being towed. Stone learned that the vehicle belonged to the father, and that he knew his daughter's license was suspended and allowed her to drive it anyway.

Whitley Hussey was charged with operating after suspension and her father received a summons for permitting the illegal use of a motor vehicle.


ORONO - A 17-year-old from Greenbush was summoned for allegedly causing a wreck while arguing with his mom.

On Feb. 23, around 9:50 a.m., Orono police were called to an accident. When they arrived, they learned that the Greenbush teen, who is not being identified due to his age, had been in an argument with his mother, who was driving the vehicle. As the argument intensified, the teen reportedly grabbed the steering wheel and jerked it, causing his mother to lose control and drive off the roadway.

No one was injured, but the vehicle was damaged enough that it needed to be towed. The 17-year-old was summoned for reckless conduct.

Camps burglarized

ORLAND - Maine State Police are investigating camp burglaries that were reported last week.

Off the road again

MAINE - Two different truckers were summoned for infractions last week.
