BANGOR, Maine — A woman with a history of assaults was charged with two felony domestic violence assaults last week after she reportedly injured two men at her apartment, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.
Merry Carrigan, 50, was upset when her 63-year-old male roommate invited a 58-year-old friend over around 5 p.m. on Feb. 15 and threw a bag at the visitor, scratching him, the sergeant said.
“The roommate said she just became angry with him and wanted him out,” Edwards said.
After throwing the bag, Carrigan and her roommate struggled and his finger was injured, the sergeant said.
Even though the injuries were minor, “she was charged with two charges of felony domestic violence due to her prior convictions,” Edwards said.
Carrigan was convicted of assault, violating a protection order and violating condition of release in November 2002 while living in Hampden and was sentenced to 60 days in jail for each charge, suspended, and one year of probation, according to prior court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. She also was convicted of disorderly conduct in August 2006 and ordered to pay a $500 fine, the BDN listings state.
