Belfast — A situation that began as a report of a domestic dispute Sunday, June 10, led to a series of charges for a Belfast man over the course of two days, including assault on corrections officers and a police officer.

Jeremy Arpan, 33, of Belfast was initially arrested Sunday after an alleged domestic situation in which the female victim claimed Arpan broke several of her personal belongings after an argument the two were having at a High Street residence, according to Belfast Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham.

The alleged female victim was not seriously injured in the incident, but Arpan was arrested on charges of domestic violence criminal mischief, domestic violence assault, domestic violence terrorizing and refusing to submit to arrest or detention following the incident, which occurred at about 5 p.m.

Arpan is slated to appear at Fifth District Court on those charges Tuesday, July 3.

Cunningham said Arpan continued his refusal to follow directions of police and corrections officers at the Waldo County Jail Monday, June 11.

"He just didn't want to cooperate," said Cunningham.

As a result, Arpan was additionally charged with refusing to sign a summons, assault on a corrections officer, assault on a police officer and three counts of terrorizing. Two of the terrorizing charges resulted from Arpan's alleged encounters with two corrections officers, while the third terrorizing charge stems from an alleged incident involving the same officer Arpan is accused of assaulting.

Arpan is scheduled to appear at Waldo County Superior Court on the additional charges Thursday, July 26.
