Bangor Daily News
BANGOR, Maine — A police officer attempting to arrest a local man on a charge of domestic violence assault had to defend himself against a martial arts move in order to make the arrest, and he and another officer got punched and kicked in the process.
Anthony J. King, 24, of Bangor was arrested just before 3 p.m. Monday and charged with three felonies — assault on a police officer, domestic violence assault and refusing to submit to arrest — as well as misdemeanor assault, disorderly conduct and terrorizing, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a press release Tuesday. There was also an outstanding warrant against King.
