BANGOR, Maine — Officers broke up an underage drinking party on New York Street about an hour into 2012, according to press release issued Monday by Bangor police.

Police were dispatched to Silver Road and Webster Avenue after a caller reported seeing a male dressed in dark clothing lying in the middle of the intersection, Bangor police said in a press release issued Monday. When illuminated by the headlights of the car, the male jumped up and started walking toward the Bangor Municipal Golf Course.

Officer Michael Brennan spoke with the male, a 15-year-old from Glenburn, who said he had just left a party on New York Street.

As police neared the house where the party reportedly was taking place, officers saw several people scatter into nearby woods and walking away from the house.

Samuel Nisbett, 19, of Bangor, the only person police interacted with from the party who was not a juvenile, was summoned for illegal possession and-or the consumption of alcohol by a minor and the sale and-or use of drug paraphernalia.

Charges could be lodged against the homeowner and whoever furnished alcohol to those who attended the party, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday. (Judy Harrison, BDN)
