PITTSFIELD, Maine — An intoxicated Newport man faces four charges after kicking out a window of a police cruiser while on his way to jail, police say.

Guyfred Hickey, 32, was arrested Saturday night and was charged with criminal trespass, refusing to submit to arrest or detention, aggravated criminal mischief and refusing to sign a criminal summons, Pittsfield Sgt. Tim Roussin said on Sunday.

Police were called to a residence at Deer Hill Apartments at 8:09 p.m. Saturday with reports of an intoxicated man knocking on the door of an apartment.

“He threw coffee brandy all over the window and threw a glass bottle,” said Roussin. “I guess he got out of control.”

Roussin said Maine State Police had Hickey in custody before handing him off to Pittsfield police.

While being transported to Somerset County Jail in Madison, Hickey kicked out the rear window on the driver’s side of the Pittsfield police cruiser and broke an antennae.

“He kicked out one window already and was working on the second window,” Roussin said.

Roussin said a Pittsfield police officer injured his shoulder during the arrest.

Hickey was still in jail as of Sunday afternoon.

According to Bangor Daily News archives, Hickey has an extensive history with police.

In 2001, he was indicted by a Somerset County grand jury for six counts of burglary to a motor vehicle, five counts of theft, criminal mischief, eluding an officer and operating a vehicle after suspension.

Five years later, he was indicted by a Waldo County grand jury for criminal operating while under the influence of intoxicants and operating beyond licence suspension.

A year later in 2007, he was again indicted by a Somerset County grand jury for burglary and theft.
