Lobsterman Fined for Boarding Accused Shooter's Boat

Oh boy.....


Here we go.....


By Stephen Betts
Rockland — A 42-year-old Owls Head man was fined $500 on Feb. 22 after he pleaded guilty to criminal trespass in a case that occurred last summer aboard the lobsterboat of a man accused later that day of shooting him.

Christopher L. Young entered his plea and was fined in Knox County Superior Court.
Young was convicted of going aboard the fishing vessel of Edwin Vance Bunker on the morning of July 20 off the waters of Matinicus Island.

Bunker claimed in court documents filed last year that Young got on his boat, swore at him, grabbed him and then tried to take him down. Bunker pepper sprayed Young twice after Young refused to get off his boat, Bunker said in the affidavit. Young left after the second pepper spraying.
