BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor man who refused to quiet down after several requests to do so by Bangor police officers last week was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest and carrying a concealed weapon.
Luiz Garcia Jr., 32, was arrested shortly after 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday of last week after city police officers were called to a First Street apartment building to deal with a noise complaint, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.
When Officers Joe Page and Kyle Pelkey arrived, they heard yelling, loud voices and the sounds of people running inside one of the units, Edwards said. After making their way into the apartment, they saw a man they identified as Garcia and an unidentified woman.
The officers spoke with Garcia, but he was not cooperative, Edwards said. While the police were attempting to interview Garcia, he reportedly pulled what appeared to be a knife in a sheath out of his pants and threw it down the stairs and walked outside.
When officers approach Garcia, he became combative and officers had to wrestle him to the ground in order to put handcuffs on him. In the meantime, he continued to holler and resist efforts to subdue him, Edwards said.
