OAKLAND, Maine — An Oakland man is facing multiple charges after threatening a woman with a shotgun during a domestic dispute Wednesday, police said.

Even though Jeffery Hunter, 36, never fired the weapon, he used it in a threatening manner, resulting in a Class B felony charge of aggravated reckless conduct with a firearm, Oakland police Capt. Rick Stubbert said Friday.

Police were called to the Old Waterville Road home at 11:30 a.m., according to Stubbert.

“We knew there was mention of a gun,” he said. “We figured out the rest when we got there.”

Stubbert, along with Oakland police Officer Gary Bowman, Chief Michael Tracy and Sgt. Jerry Haynes, went to the scene. Hunter was arrested without incident.

Hunter was also charged with domestic violence assault, obstructing a crime report and criminal restraint, Stubbert said.

He was booked into the Kennebec County Correctional Facility, where bail was set at $4,200. Hunter’s first court appearance is Dec. 4.
