Fairfield man accused of assault outside Waterville tavern, police say

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A Fairfield man involved in an altercation outside of the Bob-In in Waterville is facing an assault charge, according to police.

Officers on patrol noticed a fight in front of the bar around 1 a.m. Saturday, and the alleged aggressor, Jason Trial, 28, was warned to stop fighting, Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

Trial apparently didn’t listen, as he ran away from police despite repeated warnings to stop so officers could identify him and issue him a disorderly conduct warning, Rumsey said.

Once police caught up with Trial, he became combative with police, according to Rumsey, but officers were able to get him under control and place him in handcuffs.

Trial wasn’t done resisting, repeatedly kicking at a police cruiser as officers tried to place him into the squad car, Rumsey said. A shot of pepper spray finally got him under control.

Trial was booked on charges of assault and refusing to submit to arrest, according to Rumsey. He later was bailed from the Waterville police station.
