ROCKLAND, Maine — A Thomaston man serving time for trashing his grandparents’ home is in more trouble with the law.

Christopher Snow, 23, was arrested Sunday afternoon at the Knox County Jail and charged by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office with aggravated assault.

Sheriff Donna Dennison said that Snow allegedly punched another inmate after an argument over name calling. The other inmate was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center and received stitches, she said.

Snow is serving a 250-day jail term for criminal mischief.

He is scheduled to make an initial court appearance in Rockland District Court on Monday afternoon. printed on August 18, 2017
