Gun threat suspect arrested



BAR HARBOR — A Hancock man who allegedly threatened to bring a gun to Mount Desert Island Hospital after becoming upset about not getting an appointment with his doctor was arrested on a felony level terrorizing charge.

According to police, John Timmons, 32, allegedly made the threat during an Oct. 27 phone call to the hospital’s Cadillac Family Practice building on Main Street. A hospital employee reported the incident to police around 11:15 a.m., and the building went into lockdown. Police responded and determined Timmons was at his home in Hancock and not in the area.

Arrangements were made for the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department to take Timmons into custody and take him to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth. Once Timmons was cleared medically by hospital staff, a Bar Harbor officer placed him under arrest, charging him with Class C terrorizing.

If convicted of the Class C crime, Timmons faces up to five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.

The officer warned him not to return or else he could be charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct, warnings the Bar Harbor man reportedly ignored almost immediately.
