BANGOR — A Bangor man who is charged with terrorizing a high school soccer team says he never threatened the teenagers.

Police say Steven Butler, 40, displayed a weapon and threatened the Bangor High School Soccer Club just as they were starting practice Tuesday afternoon.

Butler told WCSH-TV that a group of teenagers entered his property from the Union Street Athletic Complex. He said he has post-traumatic stress disorder, and he acted instinctively to protect his family.

Butler said he stayed on his property and never stepped on the athletic field.

Police did not disclose what weapon was used or the nature of the alleged threat.
