OLD TOWN, Maine — An Old Town woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend amid a domestic dispute Sunday afternoon is facing multiple charges, police said.
Marilyn Scott, 50, is facing charges of aggravated domestic violence assault, refusing to submit to arrest and assault on a police officer, Old Town police Capt. Kyle Smart said Monday.
Officers had responded to a residence at an apartment complex on Stillwater Ave. after an intoxicated Scott had called police, Smart said.
At some point during the afternoon, Scott and her boyfriend had an argument which prompted Scott to stab the man in the leg, according to Smart. The man’s injuries were minor.
Scott was not cooperative with Officers James Fearon and Josh Loring when they arrived, the captain said.
“She didn’t want to talk about how he got the injury to his leg,” Smart said.
When the officers went to place Scott under arrest, she pulled away, according to Smart. When Loring and Fearon tried to handcuff her, she kicked Loring, but was eventually placed in handcuffs.
Upon being escorted to a cruiser, Scott kicked Fearon before he and Loring managed to get her in the car, Smart said.
Scott was brought to Penobscot County Jail. She is scheduled to be arraigned in court at 1 p.m. Monday.
