CORINNA, Maine — A 19-year-old Corinna man and his 15-year-old sidekick were arrested Sunday after they reported went to a home on Exeter Road looking for a fight.
Justin Allen Corson, 19, was charged with burglary, criminal threatening and criminal mischief, Deputy Ed Toulouse of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department said Friday. He was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail.
The juvenile, whose name was withheld because of his age, was charged with criminal threatening and criminal mischief, he said, adding that he was released to his parents.
The episode that led to the arrests began with a text, Toulouse said. A Corinna man who had resided with a friend of Corson’s sent a text message to Corson accusing him of stealing $20.
Corson and his alleged accomplice turned up at the texter’s residence, where a verbal confrontation took place, the deputy said. He said that the texter and his girlfriend told Corson and the juvenile to leave.
Instead of departing, however, the duo went around the home to a door opposite the one they left from. Corson then kicked in the door, damaging the hinges. They then reportedly took off their shirts and demanded a fight.
After police were called, the pair left the texter’s residence, Toulouse said. He said he caught up with the two at Corson’s home, also on Exeter Road.
