A Belfast man making false reports of disturbance to the police was summoned and arrested May 5. Christopher W. O’Brien, 26, was summoned for two counts of false alarm or report and arrested for a probation violation May 5 when calls of disturbance he made led Belfast Police officers right to his home.

Detective Bryan Cunningham said Belfast Police Sgt. Walter Corey and Officer Dan Fitzpatrick arrived at the Piper Stream Mobile Home Park on Back Belmont Road at about 10 p.m., after receiving a call about a fight that had broken out at the trailer park. Cunningham said the unidentified caller who reported the disturbance indicated seven or eight people were involved in an ongoing fight and that the caller believed there was a weapon.

When police arrived, according to Cunningham, they found no signs of a fight, and residents told police that it had been quiet all night. While police were at the trailer park, Cunningham said, dispatch received another report of disturbance from the same caller.

After some investigation, according to Cunningham, police traced the calls to a cell phone belonging to a resident of the trailer park. Police visited the woman, who when asked said she had not been using her phone. Cunningham said the officers found the phone in the possession of O’Brien, who was asleep at the woman’s home.

With the permission of the owner of the cell phone, police checked the log of recent phone calls made and found outgoing calls to the Waldo County Regional Communications Center, which acts as the county’s 911.

Police summoned O’Brien, who was on probation at the time, for two counts of false public alarm or report, and arrested him for probation violation after a test indicated O’Brien had been drinking, according to Cunningham.
