BANGOR, Maine — An Indian Island man was arrested Tuesday after police say he shoved his ex-girlfriend during a fight and took her car.

Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said the confrontation between Nickolas McGrane, 22, and the woman began with an argument over the couple’s children.

Edwards said McGrane shoved the woman and took her car. It was eventually recovered in the Orono area.

Bangor police Officer Richard Polk conducted several interviews with McGrane, and he was arrested and charged with Class A felony theft for stealing the vehicle, unauthorized use of property, and a probation violation.

Edwards would not specify what McGrane was on probation for. The woman was not injured, and no weapons were involved.

McGrane remained in the Penobscot County Jail on Wednesday.
