Four arrested after Washington melee

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

WASHINGTON, Maine — Police officers from six departments converged at a home here early Tuesday morning to quell a fight.

Four people ultimately were arrested and Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison said more people will be charged.

The department received a 911 call shortly after midnight. The caller hung up and Sgt. Michael Sprague and Deputy John Hansen responded to a residence on Crystal Lake Road to check out the reason for the call.

When they arrived there was a fight going on, according to Dennison. The deputies called for backup as they tried to get control of the situation. Officers from Maine State Police, Waldoboro Police Department, Camden Police Department, Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and Rockport Police Department all responded and assisted.

Dennison said when officers arrived there were at least three people rolling on the floor and fighting and there was a lot of screaming. A group of people also were present but when officers began arresting individuals most left the scene, she said.

The sheriff said intoxication was a factor.

Arrested for obstructing government administration and disorderly conduct were Travis Condon, 21, Steven Condon, 22, Cody Condon, 23, and a juvenile, the sheriff said. The adults were released on bail.

The investigation is continuing and additional criminal charges will be forthcoming for others involved in the incident, the sheriff said.
