BRUNSWICK, Maine — Police arrested a Woolwich man they say became combative after they tried to issue him a warning for urinating in public early Sunday morning.
At around 1:23 a.m., police reportedly spotted a man urinating on a fence in direct view of Maine Street near Cumberland Street.
Brunswick police Lt. Michael Moody said the man, later identified as Nathan Dalton, 34, of Woolwich, was told not to urinate in public. Officers asked for his identification so they could give him a warning for public urination, Moody said, but Dalton allegedly refused and became loud and belligerent.
Moody said officers tried to detain Dalton by placing handcuffs on him for his safety and he started fighting. He allegedly kicked Officer Matthew Swan and made multiple threats toward officers.
Dalton was charged with assault and refusing to submit to arrest or detention and taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland. He has a May 21 court date.
