WALDO, Maine — Delilah might have gotten away with it, but Mindy Lavoie didn’t.

The 35-year-old Waldo woman was arrested this week after allegedly shaving her boyfriend’s head while he was sleeping, according to police.

A neighbor concerned about the screaming and yelling she heard from next door called police at about 8:30 p.m. Monday to report a domestic fight, said Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

Responding officers found an upset man outside the residence. Thomas A. Thomas, who also was arrested after the events of the evening, said he had gone to sleep and when he woke up, somebody had cut his hair.

Trafton said he didn’t know how long the 36-year-old Thomas’ hair was before the unasked-for haircut.

When police talked to Lavoie, she told them he had passed out after drinking, and she was mad.

“She said if he ever came home drunk again, she’d shave his head, so she did,” Trafton said.

The couple got into a physical altercation after Thomas woke up, he said.

Officers charged Lavoie with domestic violence assault and charged Thomas with violation of the conditions of release from a prior offense.
