WATERVILLE, Maine — A teenage boy is facing a trio of charges after he grew agitated at a music store clerk on Tuesday, according to police.

The 17-year-old from Waterville was angry because he “felt he had been cheated on some transaction” at Bull Moose Music on Main Street, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

When the clerk ordered the boy to leave, he refused to comply, Rumsey said, going outside the store but remaining on the property. The teen also pushed over a music display case while inside, police say.

When police arrived and tried to speak with the boy and charge him with criminal mischief, he grew angrier and tried to leave, Rumsey said.

The suspect “resisted very violently,” Rumsey said, but officers were able to subdue him and place him in custody.

The teen was charged with with refusing to submit to arrest, criminal mischief and terrorizing, Rumsey said. He was booked into the Waterville police station and released.
