By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

ORONO, Maine — A 25-year-old woman is facing multiple charges after violating her bail conditions and allegedly assaulting a police officer.

The sequence of events leading to the arrest of Hannah McMann of Orono began around 1 a.m. Saturday, when police responded to a 911 hangup call, according to Orono Police Chief Josh Ewing.

Ewing said a man whom McMann is prohibited from contacting per her bail conditions answered the door at an apartment when police arrived, and he said McMann had left the scene. An officer subsequently found her hiding behind the apartment.

When police went to arrest McMann, she became uncooperative, kicking an officer in the knee and right thigh while attempting to pull away, forcing police to put her back on the ground, Ewing said.

Once placed into a cruiser, McMann continued to resist, kicking the officer another time before she was seatbelted into the patrol car, Ewing said.

The officer was not injured.

McMann was charged with assault on a police officer, refusing to submit to arrest and violating conditions of release. She was taken to Penobscot County Jail.
