By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Canadian man is facing a domestic assault charge after police say he pushed his wife during an argument at a hotel bar early Friday.

Don Ross McFetridge, 61, of St. John, New Brunswick, was intoxicated at the bar at Howard Johnson’s on Odlin Road just after midnight Friday, according to Bangor police Sgt. Garry Higgins, and got into an altercation with the woman.

“There apparently had been some drinking going on,” Higgins said.

Howard Johnson’s staff members contacted Bangor police, and Officer Chris Blanchard responded and arrested McFetridge.

McFetridge was taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with domestic assault, a Class D misdemeanor. He remained there Friday afternoon and faces up to a year behind bars if convicted.
