MEXICO, Maine — A local man charged with beating a woman and his dog remained in Oxford County Jail on Wednesday night, officials said.

Casey Flagg, 33, of 48 Main St., was arrested Tuesday afternoon after police investigated a report of a man beating and kicking his dog on Main Street, Lt. Roy Hodsdon said. Casey was charged with animal cruelty.

Further investigation by officer Michael Cook led to additional charges Tuesday night of domestic assault of a woman and nonpayment of fines for operating under the influence, Hodsdon said.

The injured woman was taken to Rumford Hospital for treatment and later released. No information was available on the dog’s injuries.

Cook was assisted by Rumford police officer Joe Sage and Cpl. Don Miller.

Flagg remained at the county jail in Paris on Wednesday night on $1,500 cash bail. He is scheduled to appear in 11th District Court in Rumford on July 3.
