Old Town Man Charged After Trying to ‘Arrest’ Officer
An Old Town man faces several charges after he allegedly tried to "arrest" a police officer on Monday.
Christopher Fuller, 45, was charged with disorderly conduct, refusal to submit, and obstructing government administration.
The arrest came after police responded to Perkins Avenue in Old Town for the report of a man acting erratically. The man, later identified as Fuller, was wearing a red shirt that said “police” on the back, had on a hat on that read “police,” and was holding a pair of handcuffs.
Fuller approached the responding officer, began using profanities, and told him that he was under arrest and was going to jail. Fuller was warned for disorderly conduct but he proceeded to tell the officer that he was under arrest. Fuller reportedly reached over, attempted to grab the officer, and then swung at him, according to police.
Fuller was taken into custody. On Wednesday, Fuller was released on bail.
Police warned area residents to use caution if they come across Fuller. He should not be on any school property or any city property. Police ask residents to contact the police department if he is at any of these properties.
