BANGOR - The man who was arrested after a two-hour standoff with police in Bangor Wednesday is facing additional charges.

Police say 25-year-old Benjamin McGary of Bangor went to a home on C Street about 1 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.


Authorities said McGary was not legally allowed to be at the property.


Police locked down the area and a tactical team was called in.


McGary eventually came out peacefully and surrendered.


In addition to McGary's having violated a protection order, police said they also arrested him on an active warrant for several domestic violence-related charges.


Authorities said they recovered a rifle believed to be related to the incident from the C Street residence after his arrest.


McGary is being held at Penobscot County Jail.
