SACO, Maine — A local man is facing domestic violence charges after police say he pushed his girlfriend during an argument on Friday.

Daryn Plante, 43, was arrested at his Tall Pines Drive home just after 1:30 a.m., according to Deputy Chief Jeff Holland.

Holland said Plante and the woman were arguing over family matters, prompting Plante to shove her. The deputy chief said the woman did not require medical attention.

Plante was cooperative with police when they were sent to the scene, Holland said. He was arrested and charged with domestic violence assault, a Class D felony. He was later released from the police station on $500 cash bail.

Plante is due in court June 27.
