WATERVILLE, Maine — An argument over a missing iPod led to the arrest of a Waterville man on domestic violence charges Sunday afternoon, according to police.
Neil Teixeira, 29, was apparently angry about not being able to find the device, and he subsequently began throwing things around his Elm Street apartment and made threats to kill his girlfriend, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said Tuesday.
The woman went to the city’s warming center operated by the United Way to call police around 2:30 p.m., Rumsey said.
Police interviewed both parties and placed Teixeira under arrest, charging him with domestic violence assault and domestic violence terrorizing, both Class D misdemeanors, the deputy chief said.
No injuries were reported in the incident, and Teixeira was released on bail from the police station after he was booked.
