BANGOR, Maine — A local man who was arrested for domestic violence assault last week has been arrested two times since then, the last time on Monday for being with the woman he reportedly assaulted a week ago, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

Earl Grover Jr., 42, was first arrested on Oct. 17 on a charge of domestic violence assault after reportedly hurting a 44-year-old woman and for violating his bail conditions.

He was picked up by Brewer police Officer Edwardo Benjamin about 6:30 p.m. Sunday for operating with a suspended driver’s license and for violating his bail conditions, which bar him from breaking the law.

“He was arrested on the 23rd by Brewer and the 24th by us,” Edwards said.

A loud fight between Grover and the woman he was ordered by the court to avoid is what landed him in jail on Monday, the Bangor sergeant said.

Police got a call at around 11:15 p.m. from a neighbor of the female victim saying there was a loud argument going on.

“His bail conditions are not to have contact with her and he did,” Edwards said.

Grover was arrested on Monday for again violating his bail conditions.

He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and remained there on Wednesday, the sergeant said.
