BLUE HILL, Maine — A local man was arrested Sunday after allegedly firing off a rifle during an argument with a neighbor, according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a report released Wednesday, Brian Remillard, 45, of Blue Hill, was arrested Sunday afternoon on a charge of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon after a sheriff’s deputy and two Maine State Police troopers responded to a complaint of shots fired on Austin Lane.
Remillard was brought to Hancock County Jail in Ellsworth, where later that evening he posted $500 cash bail and was released.
Lt. Tim Cote of the sheriff’s office said Wednesday that he couldn’t release much information about the incident, though he said the charge would have been more severe had Remillard attempted to shoot his neighbor.
“There was an argument between neighbors, and that’s what it [the shooting] stemmed from,” Cote said. “This is pending criminal prosecution, so I can’t get into detail.”
Remillard will make his first appearance at Hancock County Superior Court on Feb. 21.
