BANGOR, Maine — An 18-year-old who pulled a knife on another man Saturday night was charged with felony criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Michael Tracy of Bangor was at an Ohio Street apartment around 9:30 p.m. Saturday when police were called, the sergeant said. Tracy was 16 when he was involved in a street fight that led to the death of his friend John “Bobby” Surles on Jan. 27, 2010, Edwards confirmed.

Officers Ryan Jones and Chris Blanchard responded to the call on Saturday.

“The suspect pulled a knife on another man and basically said that he was going to stab him,” Edwards said.

Eyewitnesses at the apartment corroborated the story that Tracy threatened the male victim, the sergeant said. Jones arrested Tracy and took him to Penobscot County Jail. He later was released, a jail official said Tuesday.

Tracy faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 if convicted of the felony criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.
