BELFAST, Maine — Two brothers were arrested early Sunday morning after they reportedly began fighting at a local pub and then resisted police intervention.

Christopher Daley, 26, of Searsport and Timothy Daley, 29, of Searsport had been at the Lookout Pub on Front Street in Belfast when they got into a fight, according to a Belfast Police Department report.

Bar staff separated the brothers, threw them out and contacted police about the disturbance, Detective Bryan Cunningham said Monday.

When officers arrived, Christopher Daley allegedly was shouting and falling in the snow and refused to cooperate with police, Cunningham said.

He did not want to get into the police cruiser, did not sign the uniform summons and complaint, and allegedly threatened and fought the officer, according to the police report.

When Christopher Daley was booked at Waldo County Jail he was placed in a restraint chair, Cunningham said.

Timothy Daley likewise resisted arrest, allegedly grabbing Officer Scott Christianson by his uniform front and slapping him on the jaw.

Timothy Daley was placed in handcuffs and threatened the officer, who had removed a knife Daley had in his belt, Cunningham said. He also refused to sign the summons and also was put into a restraint chair at Waldo County Jail.

Christopher Daley was charged with refusing to submit, disorderly conduct, criminal threatening and refusing to sign a uniform summons and complaint.

Timothy Daley was charged with assault, disorderly conduct, refusing to submit and refusing to sign a uniform summons and complaint.
