BANGOR, Maine — A 19-year-old Bangor man was arrested on domestic violence charges early Tuesday morning after city police officers went to his residence to follow up on a 911 hangup.

Seth Hall was “clearly upset” and uncooperative when Bangor police Officers Joe Page, Gary Decker and David Olmstead showed up at his apartment at 323 Stillwater Ave., Sgt. Dave Bushey said Tuesday night, citing a police report.

“He answered the door in his underwear and refused to comply with any of the officers’ requests,” Bushey said. After placing Hall in handcuffs and conducting further investigation, the police charged Hall with domestic violence terrorizing and domestic violence criminal mischief, Bushey said.

Investigating officers believe Hall disconnected the 911 call placed by his female victim, whose identity is being withheld, Bushey said.

Hall’s arrest about 12:10 a.m. marked his second encounter with city police in less than two hours, Bushey said.

The first occurred shortly before 11:30 p.m. on Monday, when he — along with a few other people — were spotted by Officer Kyle Pelkey in the Brown Woods, a city park, after its closing time of 10 p.m.

None of those in the park were charged at the time, Bushey said. After they were identified, the people in the park were allowed to leave.

“It was a coincidence,” Bushey said.
