Night of drinking ends in fisticuffs, domestic assault charge
Winterport — A Winterport woman spent the wee hours of Wednesday morning Sept. 25 in jail after police say she returned home intoxicated and struck her live-in boyfriend in the face at least four times.
Christina Demmons, 30, of Winterport, was arrested on a charge of domestic assault early Wednesday morning after police responded to a report of an ongoing altercation at a Stream Road residence.
"The caller reported there was a fight going on between a male and a female, and that the female hit the male," said Waldo County Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton.
Trafton said the report came from an individual who was staying in a camper in the driveway of the residence in which the fight was allegedly occurring.
Upon arrival, officers learned Demmons, her boyfriend and their young children were visiting a friend's home earlier in the evening. Demmons, her boyfriend and their hosts all had a few drinks, and Trafton said the boyfriend left the gathering to bring the children back home because it was getting late.
Demmons remained at the friends' home until early Wednesday morning, and Trafton said when she returned home she started arguing with her boyfriend.
"When she returned home she was angry," said Trafton, who stated the initial report did not indicate why Demmons was so upset. "She struck him three times with an open hand and once with a fist."
After investigating at the scene, Trafton said police determined Demmons was the primary aggressor and placed her under arrest.
Demmons is scheduled to appear at Fifth District Court in Belfast Tuesday, Oct. 8.
