ORLAND, Maine — A Sedgwick man was charged with bail violation and assault Friday after deputies responded to a call about a “combative” man with a baseball bat outside a local house.

Keith Kegley, 32, allegedly swung at an Orland man with a baseball bat around 3:30 p.m., according to Deputy Shane Campbell of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.

The alleged victim’s 14-year-old daughter had to pull Kegley off her father, Campbell said. The victim then managed to spray Kegley in the face with pepper spray.

The officers who responded found Kegley washing his eyes in a brook down the road from the house, according to the police report. Campbell said Kegley admitted to drinking alcohol, even though he had previously been arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicants and one of his bail conditions was that he could not drink alcohol.

According to Campbell, Kegley said that the man he attacked owed him $900 for a roof job.
