JACKSON, Maine — A Jackson man who was arrested last week after allegedly violently assaulting a woman was caught with her by police Saturday night, which violated his bail conditions and caused him to be sent to jail once again.

Thomas Bubar, 27, of Village Road first was charged early Wednesday night with domestic violence assault and obstructing the report of a crime after police talked to the woman involved. When they arrived at the residence after 1 a.m., the “extremely emotional” woman at the home said she and Bubar had been arguing, and that he became confrontational and violent, according to Chief Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

She told police Bubar had thrown her against the wall, had kicked her in the abdomen with his shoes on, had grabbed her by the shoulders and shaken her, had kicked her in the shins and had punched her four or five times in the head.

“He punched her so hard she saw flashes of light,” Trafton said Monday.

He also took the phone from her when she called 911, disconnected the line and put it in his pocket.

After being arrested and booked at Waldo County Jail in Belfast, Bubar made bail Friday, Aug. 3.

Saturday night, when officers went back to the residence to do a bail check, they found Bubar at the house with the woman and he was taken back into custody on a charge of violation of conditions of release.

Trafton said his officers take domestic violence seriously.

A jail official said Monday that Bubar’s bail was set at $500 cash. He remains in police custody at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.
