An intoxicated Bangor woman who became upset because her live-in boyfriend had to baby-sit his 8-year-old son on Saturday got into a verbal then physical fight with him and was arrested, Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Tuesday.

Sara Hathaway, 26, reportedly assaulted her 49-year-old boyfriend just before midnight Saturday and was charged with felony domestic violence assault because she has a prior conviction from 2008, Edwards said.

Hathaway was taken to Penobscot County Jail at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday and remained there Wednesday night, a jail official said. If convicted of the felony domestic violence assault charge, Hathaway could face a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.


Two friends were arrested early Wednesday in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn on Odlin Road in Bangor after a verbal altercation between three intoxicated men inside Pete & Larry’s Bar & Grill escalated into a physical fight once the group got outside, Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a press release.

When police arrived at around 12:30 a.m. the fight had broken up and no one wanted to press charges, so all were asked to leave, Edwards said.

“Two of the men, Robert Seger and Michael Butler, became argumentative and used abusive language towards the officers and refused to leave after receiving written criminal trespass orders and told to leave the property,” Edwards stated.

Both men continued to argue with police and when Butler, 22, of Winterport was placed under arrest by Officer Shawn Green, Seger, 21, of Frankfort attempted to intervene and a brief struggle ensued.

Both men were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and refusing to submit to arrest. Seger also was charged with obstructing government administration. Both were taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released.
