By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A heated argument between a boyfriend and girlfriend Monday night resulted in the woman slapping the man in the face and her cooling off in jail, police said.

Michaela St. Jean, 23, of Waterville is facing a charge of domestic violence assault and was also summoned for possession of drug paraphernalia after officers allegedly found a glass pipe with marijuana residue upon searching her, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

A neighbor of St. Jean’s at 6 Gold Street heard screaming and banging in the apartment around 6 p.m. and notified police, Rumsey said.

When officers arrived, the male indicated St. Jean had slapped him in the face several times during an argument that Rumsey said involved a lot of screaming.

St. Jean was placed under arrest and reportedly didn’t go quietly, kicking the bottom glass portion of a screen door after police had handcuffed her, police said.

St. Jean was booked into the Waterville police station and later released on bail.
