BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Authorities say a man who entered the Maine home of horror writer Stephen King is facing charges.

Police say 29-year-old Christopher Prince of Orono (OHR'-uh-noh) went inside King's home in Bangor on Tuesday but was ordered to leave by staff members.

Police said Friday that the trouble grew when Prince became combative with officers who tried to question him. Authorities ended up arresting him on charges of failure to submit to arrest. He was also issued a criminal trespass warning.

A phone listing for Prince couldn't be found.
