BANGOR, Maine — Two people were taken to jail after an alleged incident in a Husson University dormitory room late Saturday night, according to police.
The sequence of events leading to the arrests of John Wagoner, 19, of Durham and Husson student Megan Creney, 19, of Waterford started around 11 p.m., Bangor police Sgt. Cathy Rumsey said.
Wagoner is not a Husson student, she said.
Husson security had asked for assistance from Bangor police after responding to a dorm room incident in which the people inside were uncooperative, the sergeant said. She added that security were concerned an assault had taken place.
Officers found a visibly intoxicated Wagoner, who had refused to leave the room upon being ordered to do so as he was not a student, Rumsey said.
Wagoner and Creney were allegedly yelling obscenities at police. The pair were issued disorderly conduct warnings, and Wagoner allegedly continued to refuse to leave despite warnings he would be arrested.
When police tried to handcuff Wagoner, Creney stepped in between despite warnings not to interfere, Rumsey said. Creney struck an officer in the face and shoved the officer away from Wagoner, she said.
Creney was placed under arrest, and she too refused to cooperate, the sergeant said. Both suspects were eventually subdued and continued swearing at police while being escorted to squad cars, Rumsey noted.
Creney was charged with obstructing government administration, disorderly conduct, assault, and refusing to submit to arrest. Wagoner was charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest and assault.
Both were taken Penobscot County Jail.
