Man acquitted in criminal threatening case

ELLSWORTH — A Hancock County jury Nov. 13 found an Ellsworth man not guilty of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.

The jury also found Bruce M. Wallace, 64, not guilty of terrorizing.

Ellsworth Police had charged Wallace after he was alleged to have brandished an ax handle — just the handle, without a head on it — during a disagreement with neighbors last June.

Stonington attorney John Steed represented Wallace.
