BANGOR, Maine — Bangor police responded Tuesday night to a report of a group of disorderly people on Second Street, and they ended up arresting one man who had multiple warrants.

When officers went to break up what Sgt. Paul Edwards described as a “pig pile in the middle of the street,” they began questioning Zachary Elkins, 20, of Bangor.

Edwards said that Elkins lied to police about his name, and when he gave his correct name, he was quickly arrested and taken to the Penobscot County Jail.

Elkins remained behind bars Wednesday afternoon and faced charges of violation of bail and failure to provide a correct name, the sergeant said.

Nobody was injured in the incident, and all others involved received warnings for disorderly conduct, Edwards said.
