BANGOR, Maine — An intoxicated Bangor man who was screaming at a woman was arrested last week after he threw a beam into the side of their Essex Street apartment building, police said.

Kenneth Emfinger, 49, was yelling drunkenly on Feb. 21 outside the apartment he shares with the woman, and the beam broke some glass on the front door, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

Edwards said when Officer Taylor Bagley arrived at the scene, the suspect was spotted with the beam in his hand.

“[He] threw the beam into the side of the building,” the sergeant said.

Emfinger was arrested without incident, and was charged with domestic criminal mischief, a Class D misdemeanor. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later released on bail.

The woman was not injured.
