We’re not in northern Maine anymore

I grew up in Orono, Maine. To anybody who’s actually from Maine and has knowledge of the local geography, Orono is in central Maine. That’s the truth. However, I still tell fellow Bowdoin students that I’m from “northern Maine” because people from the West Coast typically think that anywhere north of Augusta is just an outcropping of moose and deer-filled wilderness.

An armed confrontation at the Walmart Supercenter in Brewer has drawn a large police presence to the store, where shoppers left inside were told to shelter in place Friday evening.

The confrontation involved an armed person in a vehicle in the Walmart parking lot, according to the Brewer Police Department. Shoppers left in the store were safe, police said.

In addition to Walmart, the situation forced the nearby Ruby Tuesday restaurant to close.

Police have blocked off the Walmart parking lot, not allowing anyone to enter.

April Jones of LaGrange had dropped her car off at the Walmart garage to get it fixed around 4 p.m. She was shopping at the nearby Urban Garden Center when she heard about an incident at Walmart.

Deputy Mayor of Brewer charged with making false police report over racist Facebook comments

A Scarborough man accused of standing off with police outside the Brewer Walmart on Friday has been arrested.

Patrick Mullen, 51, faces charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and creating a standoff, according to the Brewer Police Department.

Police were called to the Walmart parking lot on Wilson Street about p.m. for a disorderly call. While at the scene, they found that Mullen had numerous outstanding warrants.

Mullen became “agitated” and threatened to kill himself with a firearm, Brewer police said early Saturday morning.

Officers then cleared the area around Mullen and placed the Walmart on lockdown. The ensuing standoff, which drew assistance from the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, Maine State Police and Bangor and Holden police departments, stretched well into the night, leaving customers sheltering in place in Walmart and closing nearby Ruby Tuesday’s.

That came to an end about a.m. when police arrested Mullen, who suffered a laceration on his arm during the arrest and was taken across the river to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, according to Brewer police.

The investigation is ongoing and no additional information was released.
