LINCOLN, Maine — A local man was being held at Penobscot County Jail late Tuesday after police charged him with terrorizing his wife with a firearm, officials said.
Terry Libby, 54, of Lincoln was charged with terrorizing and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.
Libby surrendered to several police officers and a state trooper at his MacKenzie Avenue home after they were called there about 6:30 p.m. Saturday by family members who said that Libby was depressed and had a firearm, Police Chief William Lawrence said.
Libby allegedly fired one shot sometime during the incident, wounding no one. Police Officers David Cram and Mark Fucile and state Trooper Larry Anderson took him into custody quietly shortly after they arrived at the house, Lawrence said.
Police took Libby to Penobscot Valley Regional Hospital for evaluation and then to the jail, Lawrence said.
Libby is being held on $1,060 bail and is due to appear at the Penobscot Judicial Center on March 6, a jail spokesman said.
