BANGOR, Maine — An intoxicated Essex Street woman who didn’t like the way a 27-year-old man crossed the street with his child Thursday night was arrested after reportedly threatening him with a knife, Bangor police Lt. Steve Hunt said Friday.

Barbara Goodwin, 48, “indicated that he wasn’t doing it right” and then “she threatened the fellow with a knife,” the lieutenant said, adding that “she threatened to kill him.”

Police collected a knife as evidence and arrested Goodwin at around 9:55 p.m. for felony criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon. She was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and remained there Friday afternoon, a jail official said. If convicted of the charge, Goodwin could face a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
