Orono teen arrested at homecoming game

An 18-year-old Orono man was arrested Saturday night during the Orono High School football game against Old Town, held as part of the school’s homecoming, after he saw police officers talking to his younger brother, Orono police Sgt. Josh Ewing said Monday.

“He was hollering at officers demanding to know what was going on,” he said.

Damian Ouellette was warned by police to calm down at around 9 p.m. and was given a criminal trespass warning but continued to be disruptive during the football game and was arrested for disorderly conduct, Ewing said.
