BANGOR, Maine — A Hermon man was arrested early Thursday after an alleged assault at a Bangor bar, police said.
Kirk Michaud, 45, is facing a charge of disorderly conduct but may be charged with assault as well, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
Officers Keith Larby and Josh Kuhn, along with Sgt. Paul Kenison, were dispatched to Carolina’s sports bar at 12:30 a.m. after it was reported a man had been assaulted, according to Edwards.
When the officers arrived, the bouncer pointed to a man, who turned out to be Michaud, walking toward the Sea Dog.
The bouncer stated to police that Michaud, who was intoxicated, had been causing problems at the bar, and once he was outside, he started a fight and punched another man in the face, the sergeant said.
Police caught up with Michaud down by the railroad tracks, but he was very uncooperative when police tried to question him, Edwards said.
At one point, he tried to push past the officers and puffed his chest out and acted in an aggressive manner, Edwards said.
Police placed Michaud under arrest and brought him to Penobscot County Jail, where he remained Thursday morning.
