Bangor police were sent to Raena’s Pub on Larkin Street to investigate an assault late Monday and ended up arresting the woman who was punched, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

“She was extremely upset she was punched in the face,” he said. “She was so wound up” that “she would not cooperate.” Edwards added that the woman was intoxicated.

Officer Joshua Kuhn arrived at the bar at around 10:15 p.m. and tried to calm down Kimberly Matlack, 46, but she continued to scream and wouldn’t answer questions, provide her name or give details about who assaulted her.

Kuhn warned Matlack that if she didn’t calm down, she would be arrested. After Kuhn reportedly warned her several times, Matlack was placed in handcuffs and taken to Penobscot County Jail, charged with disorderly conduct.

“All the way to the jail she was angry,” Edwards said.

Matlack had been released from jail by Tuesday afternoon, he said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)


A Bangor police officer stopped a car that had a homemade license plate early Tuesday morning and the driver said she made it to replace a temporary plate that had fallen off, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

The fake paper plate is not legal and “it warrants being pulled over,” he said.

The 30-year-old Milo woman, who was pulled over around 1:17 a.m. Tuesday near Cedar and Second streets, did have paperwork to prove she was driving on a temporary plate, Edwards said. She should have returned to where she purchased the car to get a replacement temporary plate instead of making her own, he added. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
