Holden man pulls gun in Silly String dispute

BREWER (AP) — A Holden man has been charged with pulling a gun on another man in a dispute that began over Silly String.

Police say 21- year- old Michael Bragdon was arrested Wednesday as he drove out of a supermarket parking lot in Brewer shortly after the confrontation. He was charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and carrying a concealed weapon

Police tell the Bangor Daily News the other man accused Bragdon of spraying the string- like substance that comes in a can over his car earlier in the day.

The two agreed to meet in the supermarket parking lot to discuss the incident, and that’s when Bragdon allegedly pulled the 9 mm handgun.

Bragdon denied being the Silly String culprit.
