BANGOR, Maine — Police were called to a large group fight near the junction of Union and Hammond streets on Saturday night and later arrested a teenager who continued to be disorderly after being told to calm down, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Police approached the group of approximately 15 young people, some of them onlookers, at about 7:40 p.m.

“Two began arguing with each other right in front of police,” the sergeant said.

The two teens were screaming at each other and using profanity, Edwards said. Each was given a disorderly conduct warning.

But Robert Desimon,18, continued to swear and was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct, Edwards said. Desimon was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later released, a jail official said.
