On 02-10-17 at approximately 2319 hrs., the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office was  dispatched to 331 Lambs Mills Rd in Naples for a domestic disturbance.  A child in the residence was the reporting party.   As Deputies were responding to the scene, they were provided additional information that an adult male had now armed himself with a handgun. 


Upon arrival, Deputies were able to evacuate four children from the residence. The male was found to be armed with a firearm.  He was non complaint with Deputies and positioned himself on the floor, keeping his girlfriend by his side.  Deputies continued to negotiate with the male and a brief, yet tense standoff continued. The girlfriend managed to get the handgun away from the male at which time Deputies converged on the suspect. The male resisted the Deputies and was brought under control with the use of a Taser.


 The suspect was identified as Brian Horton, 39 years of Naples.  He was first transported to Maine Medical Center and then ultimately to the Cumberland County Jail where is he currently being held without bail.

              3.  Aggravated Reckless Conduct with a dangerous weapon

              4.  Endangering the welfare of a Child

              5.  Refusal to submit to arrest detention
