Police on Friday identified the intruder as 29-year-old Christopher Prince, who got into a confrontation with police officers who tried to question him about the incident in Bangor.

The episode unfolded Tuesday.

Police say Prince went inside King’s home but was ordered to leave by staff members. The trouble grew when the Orono man became combative with officers who tried to question him.

Police ended up arresting him on charges of failure to submit to arrest. They also issued him a criminal trespass warning. No phone listing could be found for Christopher Prince.
