OLD TOWN, Maine — An Old Town man was arrested after he pushed a female to the ground during a drunken argument, according to police.

Corey Carr, 35, and the woman left a local bar on Main Street early Friday and were “involved in some sort of argument,” according to Old Town police Sgt. Scott Casey.

The argument escalated, and when the woman tried to call police Carr knocked her to the pavement, Casey said.

“He was able to get the phone away to keep her from calling for help,” Casey said.

Officer Christine McAvoy caught up with Carr near the Indian Island bridge and arrested him. Carr was charged with obstructing a report of a crime and domestic violence assault, Casey said.

He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released on bail, Casey said. The woman was not injured.
