Police arrest belligerent Unity couple

By Abigail Curtis, BDN Staff

UNITY, Maine — Police responding to a 911 call late Saturday night ended up arresting a belligerent Unity man who allegedly pushed his girlfriend’s mother and her 11-year-old child.

Authorities also arrested the man’s girlfriend, who reportedly had made the emergency call in the first place.

Jason L. Brewster, 29, and Becky Mercure, 20, both of Albion Road in Unity, reportedly had been fighting before Mercure called for help at about 11 p.m., according to Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

When police arrived, they found Brewster to be “drunk and belligerent,” Trafton said. Officers took him into custody, but as they were doing so, Mercure also became upset and disorderly, he said.

“She started screaming and cursing at the police,” he said.

She was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Brewster was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

Both were taken to the Waldo County Jail in Belfast.
