According to police, at about 2:46 a.m. they received a report of men fighting outside of 25 Aroostook Trail. Police said they spoke to Cannon and two other people first. Cannon told police that he was upset because someone inside the house had thrown his keys, and he couldn’t leave.
Police said that inside the house, three women were crying, and told police that Cannon had shown up uninvited and swore repeatedly at them. Two of the women told police that Cannon had pushed and hit them, but they did not want to press charges.
Another man at the residence told police that he went outside in an attempt to calm down Cannon. The man told police that Cannon instead grabbed a pipe, but then threw it away, and then went toward his truck and said he was going to get his gun.
Police noted that despite Cannon insisting that his keys were taken and thrown somewhere, they found them clearly in the middle of the street, consistent with the witness’ claim that Cannon had just dropped them.
When asked about this, police said that Cannon then claimed to have been punched in the face by a person he wouldn’t name. Police noted that Cannon had no visible injuries on his face.
Police said that based on the witness statements, Cannon was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Cannon told police that he had not threatened anyone with the pipe, and instead, he had struck himself in the face in order to make the male witness take him seriously.
Cannon was processed and then released later that day.
