OLD TOWN, Maine — An Acton man was arrested late Thursday afternoon after he threatened to beat up his girlfriend, police say.

Jason Chretien, 26, got into a heated argument with the woman at a Bennoch Road residence, according to Old Town police Sgt. Scott Casey.

Police interviewed Chretien and the woman and had enough evidence to arrest him, but he refused to cooperate so police subdued him using a Taser, Casey said.

Chretien is facing charges of domestic violence criminal threatening and refusing to submit to arrest, Casey said.

He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail where he remained Friday, the sergeant said. The woman was not injured.
