BREWER, Maine — A local Park Street resident with a protection order against a Bangor man called police on Tuesday evening when he showed up in Brewer and started removing items, Brewer police Capt. Jason Moffitt said.

Jacob Warman, 25, got upset when police arrived at around 6:20 p.m. and found him “trying to remove a trailer from the property,” the police captain said.

He was verbally abusive at first, but the situation quickly turned physical, Moffitt said.

The protection order bars Warman from being on the property or having contact with the complainant. When Officer Liz Kelley tried to arrest Warman he resisted and she and Cpl. Levi Sewall had to take him to the ground, the police captain said.

Warman kicked Sewall in the chest while the officers were taking him to the police cruiser and he was then placed in leg shackles for his trip to Penobscot County Jail in Bangor, Moffitt said.

He was charged with felony assault on a police officer, as well as violating a protection order, refusing to submit to arrest, refusing to sign a summons and two counts of violating his bail conditions.

Warman has been convicted of several crimes, including assault, criminal mischief and theft, during the last five years, according to prior court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
