BANGOR, Maine:  A Hancock man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor for assaulting a federal officer. 

Chief U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Alan Howell Parrot, 69, to probation for two years and a $5,000 fine. A federal jury found Parrot guilty on November 29, 2023, following a one-day trial.

According to evidence presented at trial, on June 22, 2023, FBI special agents were executing a federal search warrant at Parrot’s residence in Hancock. While the agents were trying to enter the residence, Parrot attempted to close the door and became combative, kicking one agent in the abdomen and pushing her backwards, resulting in injuries to her arm and elbow.

The FBI investigated the case. 

“Alan Parrot’s attack on an FBI special agent is yet another reminder of the danger law enforcement officers face on a daily basis – and the successful prosecution of Mr. Parrot should serve as a warning to all that if you assault and injure a law enforcement officer, the consequence is a felony conviction. Assaults on officers will be met with a swift response and will not be tolerated,” said Jodi Cohen, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division.
