BREWER, Maine — A Brewer woman is facing multiple charges following an incident at the Brewer Community School on Thursday morning.

Sabrina Bubier, 40, was meeting with administrative staff when she became disorderly, according to Brewer police Capt. Chris Martin.

Bubier was taken into custody at 8:15 Thursday morning. No students were ever in any danger, according to Martin.

Bubier was warned to leave by administrative staff after she became disorderly, and eventually ignored school resource Officer Dan Costain’s warnings also.

Bubier assaulted Costain when he attempted to place her into custody, but he eventually got her under control, Martin said.

Superintendent of schools Dan Lee said the incident took place at 8:10 a.m. and was over in a matter of seconds.

“The parent became violent and disruptive at the school and was restrained by the school resource officer,” Lee said. “No children were in danger. It all happened in the office area.”

Lee said there was no lockdown and classes continued as normal.

“This is why it’s important to have school resource officers,” Lee said.

Bubier was brought to Penobscot County Jail and charged with assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and failure to submit to arrest, according to Martin.
