Trouble between two teenage girls erupted into a fight during a dance in Bangor on Friday night and led to charges against the older girl, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
A 17-year-old Bangor girl assaulted a 16-year-old girl from Winterport at around 11:15 p.m. at the Spectacular Event Center on Griffin Road.
“They had some words, and the suspect threw a chair at [the 16-year-old] and punched her in the side of the face,” Edwards said.
Apparently the two girls have been having problems with each other for some time, he said.
The older teen was arrested and taken to the police station and later released to her parents, the sergeant said. The victim did not need medical care, he said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
Someone removed a stop sign at the junction of Lambert Road and Clewleyville Road in Holden, which caused a Dedham woman who was unfamiliar with the area to drive her Jeep into a ditch and hit a tree, Holden police Officer Chris Greeley said on Sunday.
The 20-year-old woman and her two passengers, a 43-year-old woman and an 18-month-old girl, escaped the crash with minor injuries, but the Jeep had about $5,000 in damage and was not drivable, the officer said.
The women called for a ride and the driver of that car, Earl Grover, 41, of Bangor, arrived and was found to be operating after suspension. Greeley said Grover initially lied about his identity, saying he was his brother, but eventually told the truth.
Grover was charged with operating after suspension and failing to give correct name to a police officer but was not arrested. The woman who was driving the Jeep that crashed got behind the wheel to drive, Greeley said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
