By BETH BROGAN, Times Record

BATH, Maine — A 28-year-old Bath man was arrested Monday afternoon at his home on Seafarer Lane after his wife reported that he assaulted her and then went outside to load bullets into the magazine of a rifle.

Robert Vaughn, 28, was charged with domestic violence assault and obstructing report of a crime, Bath police Lt. Stan Cielinski said Tuesday.

Just after 1:30 p.m., officers went to the home, where they found Vaughn outside the home, a rifle in a vehicle and a magazine for the rifle in the glove box, Cielinski said.

Vaughn’s wife told police the two argued about money and then Vaughn struck her before heading outside and loading the gun.

When police arrived, Vaughn was not holding any weapon, Cielinski said. Family members arrived to take possession of the firearm.

Vaughn was arrested and then released from the Bath police station on $250 unsecured bail. His bail conditions include no possession of firearms, according to Cielinski.

Vaughn is scheduled to appear in West Bath District Court on July 3.
