Domestic violence call ends in assault charge

By Abigail Curtis, BDN Staff

BROOKS, Maine — Police responding to a domestic violence complaint at 3:05 a.m. Thursday at a residence on Route 139 ended up arresting a woman for assaulting a deputy.

When the two deputies from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office arrived, they started to interview the man and the woman at the home, according to Chief Robert Keating.

The woman, Lisa Grant, 38, allegedly became “angry and belligerent,” Keating said.

“She was warned that if she didn’t stop swearing and hollering and screaming she’d be charged with disorderly conduct,” the chief said.

Deputies Nick Oettinger and Kevin Littlefield reportedly tried to get Grant to calm down but she “refused,” Keating said.

“At one point her right hand struck an officer on the shoulder,” he said.

At that point, the sheriff’s deputy told the 4-foot-11-inch-tall woman that she was under arrest.

Grant was taken to Waldo County Jail, where she was booked. She has since been released on bail.

She was charged with refusing to submit to arrest or detention, assault, obstructing government administration and disorderly conduct.
