Video Shows Arrest of Man After Standoff in Brewer
A witness took video at the time an hours-long standoff in Brewer ended and a suspect was taken into custody.
The standoff started sometime Saturday morning when police went to a home on Center Street. Police told WABI-TV that they went to the home with a warrant for the arrest of Nicholas McDonald, 40, of Brewer. He was wanted for a probation revocation.
Mike Carter was there and took video of the moment McDonald was removed from the home and placed in handcuffs. He posted the video on Facebook, which shows police beginning to approach the home about 1:25 in.
Officials say they got a tip about a hostage situation at the residence, but an investigation revealed there was no hostage. Still, they had been looking for McDonald in connection to the warrant. He was arrested mid-afternoon and taken to the Penobscot County Jail.
