SOUTHWEST HARBOR, Maine — A man suspected of threatening the mother of his child was arrested Saturday after he allegedly pointed a weapon at her face and then sped off in his pickup truck.

Sean P. Bremer, 27, was placed under arrest after officers with the Maine Marine Patrol and Hancock County Sheriff’s Department stopped his vehicle on Route 3 in Trenton around 2 p.m. Saturday, according to Lt. Michael Miller of the Southwest Harbor Police Department. He said Bremer used to live with the alleged victim in a mobile home park near Seawall in Southwest Harbor but that he is unsure where Bremer lives now.

Bremer is accused of using a BB gun to terrorize the alleged victim, Miller said.

The incident occurred when Bremer and his current girlfriend went to visit the alleged victim and Bremer’s 1-year-old child, according to the officer. He said Bremer and the child’s mother got into an argument about child support and went outside to hash it out. A physical altercation ensued, at which point Bremer pulled a pistol out of his pants and pointed it at her, Miller said.

The two argued some more and then Bremer sped off in his truck, according to Miller. About 10 minutes later, the woman called police to report the incident.

Other police agencies were contacted because Bremer was believed to have left Southwest Harbor by that point. Officer Colin McDonald of the Maine Marine Patrol and Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Shane Campbell located Bremer driving north on Route 3 in Trenton and stopped his vehicle, Miller said.

In a search of Bremer’s truck, police found two BB guns and a knife. Miller said police believe he used a pistol-style BB gun to allegedly threaten the woman.

“It was a BB gun he apparently had on him,” Miller said. “I’m not 100 percent sure of that.”

The weapons were confiscated and Bremer was placed under arrest and taken to Hancock County Jail in Ellsworth, according to Miller. He said Bremer was unable to make bail and was still being held at the jail on Sunday morning.
